Emilie Clairoux (LL.B. 2013, MBA 2014)
LL.M. 2018 (forthcoming)
“What left the strongest impression on me at the Faculty of Law at the Université de Montréal are the people I met. I studied alongside exceptionally passionate, motivated, curious, and intelligent people, both among my colleagues and the teaching faculty. That’s what makes the Faculty such a dynamic and rewarding place! Students learn in and out of the classroom with their colleagues by taking part in a wide range of conferences, symposiums, and research projects. For instance, as a Master’s candidate, I had the opportunity to represent the Faculty at the international Law Without Walls competition through which I cultivated an impressive professional network. This challenging environment and all the possibilities it provides inspired me to push myself harder every day.”
