ABOUT "THINK TANK"

Think Tank, the Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies' annual student legal research workshop showcases the current legal research of students pursuing their JD, LLM, or JSD at Dalhousie University's Schulich School of Law. Selected students will present a condensed version of their research (10-15 minutes) on a legal topic of interest. Each presenter will be matched with a faculty member, based on subject matter, and will receive feedback after their presentation.

The inaugural Think Tank was held on March 15, 2013. Hunter Parsons' presentation, titled Picking Winners in the Market for Corporate Control: Poison Pill Regulation in 21st Century Canada, received the top prize of $250 and a publication opportunity with the DJLS.
