Two UVic Law students, Ashley Caron and Xiaoshan Zheng, have been chosen to clerk with the Supreme Court of Canada in 2015-2016.
Ashley will be clerking with Justice Moldaver and Xiaoshan will be assigned to a new judge appointed from Quebec to fill one of the vacancies. The students will be expected to research points of law, prepare memoranda of law and generally assist the judges in the work of the court.
In each of the past four years, UVic Law has placed two clerks with the SCC. Only three law schools – McGill, University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall – have placed more students between 2012-13 and 2014-15.
