UVic Law News 1998 – Michael Mulligan Alumni Update

UVic Law News 1998

A January 1998 UVic Law News – discovered in a cleanup. A picture (check out the hair) and report from almost 18 years ago: Michael Mulligan (’97) is articling with the Department of Justice and is spending a “fair bit of time” in remand court. He also attended the Annual General Meeting of the Law Society of British Columbia in September. Dean Cohen reports that Michael drew applause on the need for adequate legal aid. Some of what he said: “I see on a daily basis … the faces of the people who stand up without representation. Looks of fear, looks of despair – those people deserve better than that. They deserve justice. They deserve dignity. And they won’t get either of those without proper representation. Defence counsel… working on legal aid are as critical to the process as the judges or the Crown… and I just wanted to stand in support of what… members of the legal profession [who] are acting for these people are saying.”
