Balancing scholarship and activism

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_Ted-Flett.jpgWhen I began law school, I had a plan to succeed.

We are more alike than we might think

b_150_0_16777215_00___images_stories_01-4STUDENTS_Standard_photos_Ted-Flett.jpgMy first year of law school at the University of New Brunswick was like a Patrick Chan Olympic skate.

But the seeds of the litigation were sown 25 years earlier, in the chill, pre-dawn hours of a Toronto morning. Young, a young lawyer at the law office of legendary criminal lawyer Alan Gold, had fielded an urgent call from a client who operated a dingy brothel near the city’s downtown bus depot. The joint was being raided, and the nervous client wanted help.
