Venetia Boehmer-Plotz’s Testimonial

Class of 2011

"After completing my graduate research on Aboriginal fisheries in post-Confederation British Columbia with Dr. Maureen Lux, I began the bijuridical civil and common law program at McGill University in fall 2011. The program is demanding, allowing me to maintain my commitment to academic excellence while honing the oral and written communication skills and efficient research strategies that I acquired through the graduate program at Brock. The experience I gained balancing graduate course work, independent research, and community involvement has prepared me for both academic and professional success in law school.  I have excelled in my roles as a Pro Bono legal intern at a Native women's shelter, as a research assistant studying reconciliation jurisprudence, and as a senior journal editor. I am grateful for the confidence and sense of initiative that I gained through the seminar program and through the strong faculty-student support that is unique to Brock's graduate program."

Venetia went on to pursue a Law degree at McGill after completing her MA in History at Brock University. She was a summer law student at Bennett Jones LLP in Calgary, Alberta and will be articling with Bennett Jones LLP in 2014.
