2L student Jamie Watson wins 'Think Tank 3' prize for best presentation

Congratulations to second-year Schulich School of Law student Jamie Watson who is this year's recipient of the Think Tank Student Legal Research Prize for her presentation entitled "Not 'Real Killers': The Restrained Use of the Criminal Law in Assisted Suicide and Euthanasia in Canada."

The 3rd Annual Think Tank Student Legal Research Workshop was held on January 28, 2015 at the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University. Established by the Dalhousie Journal of Legal Studies in 2013, this workshop represents a unique opportunity for students to deliver public lectures on their scholarly pursuits, to receive expert feedback and commentary on their research from a professor, and to engage an audience in discussion on a current legal issue. Those in attendance were treated to high-quality presentations from J.D. students on a variety of legal topics.

Congratulations to all who presented and thank you to the professors, graduate students, and associate editors who generously volunteered their time to make this year's event a success.

The Journal awards a prize for best presentation, as judged by our Editorial Board. The winner receives $250 and an opportunity to publish his or her work in a future volume of the DJLS.

We hope to see you all in 2016!
