    The 2010 McCarthy Tetrault/Women's Law Association of Ontario Community Contribution Award will be presented to Amy Slotek (Class of 2010) in Toronto on June 2, 2010. Since 2005, McCarthy Tetrault and the Women’s Law Association of Ontario have partnered to recognize a female law student who has made a significant contribution to the advancement of women studying law and who is a well-rounded student, actively involved in, and committed to, her community.

    Amy was nominated by Lynne Pearlman, Director of the University of Windsor Mediation Services, who describes Amy as “truly an exceptional woman who encompasses all of the best of what we might hope our profession to be. Amy takes seriously the privilege of a legal education, and continually looks for innovative ways to utilize that privilege in bettering the lives of those who are marginalized and who would otherwise have limited or no access to justice”.

    Amy learned of her selection after completing the first of two Ontario Licensing Examinations this week. She notes: “I am so honoured to receive this award and touched by the support and encouragement that I have received from faculty and staff alike at Windsor Law. I have had the privilege of working with and learning from amazing professors, clinical staff and colleagues. During my time at Windsor Law, I was lucky to have the opportunity to become involved in a number of diverse initiatives in the Windsor-Essex community. That I had these opportunities speaks volumes to Windsor Law's commitment to social justice and community engagement. I think that it is wonderful that the Women's Law Association of Ontario and McCarthy Tetrault endorse the importance of legal education and community involvement through this annual award. Legal education is not just about classrooms and theory, but about human connection and involvement.”

    Congratulations Amy!
