For Torontonians, the mayoral election is still fresh in their minds, and it seems like all too soon, they’ll have to make that arduous trek to the nearest government-approved public space to scribble in their choices with nubby pencils.

The national and regional moot competitions across Canada have wrapped up, giving students a chance to relax their newly acquired reflex to practise speech gestures in front of reflective surfaces and understanding friends and family. While everyone is taking a well-deserved breather — or gearing up to make grand arm sweeps in front of an international crowd — 4Students has tallied up the results of the various competitions.

It is nerve-wracking, to say the least. Fears of stammering, turning beet red, and worse, bursting into tears, run rampant.

If you delve deeper, however, you will find a group of passionate people who do get involved, both at school and in their communities. Whether its recreational floor hockey, the local food bank, student governance, or a combination of other activities, there is often a lot more to law students than meets the eye.
