    Now articling with Weldon McInnis, Emilie Coyle received the award for her leadership qualities and volunteer efforts while attending the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University. Paul Calderhead, a second-year student, received an honorarium to intern at the Centre for Law and Democracy this summer.

    Meaghan Mahadeo, a recent Schulich law graduate now clerking at the Federal Court of Canada in Ottawa, received the sixth annual prize for her paper, “What’s in a name?: An Analysis of the Politics of Band Membership Codes in the Canadian Indigenous Quest for Self-Determination.”
