The NSBS President’s Leadership Award emphasizes the importance of leadership in a lawyer’s career and honours the exemplary volunteer commitment and leadership of Past Presidents to the work of the Society.
Established by Past Presidents Philip J. Star QC and Catherine S. Walker QC, the award is presented each year at the Schulich School of Law to a graduating student who, in the eyes of the teaching faculty, has “exemplified consistent leadership qualities while at law school.”
A special congratulations to the 2021 recipient of the NSBS President’s Leadership Award Mukisa Kakembo! Mukisa was also the recipient of the Society’s Race and the Law Essay Prize.
“As a woman working in the field of social justice this recognition is very meaningful to me. Winning this award shows me that feminist and racial justice work is valued and appreciated. I am truly honoured!” – Mukisa Kakembo
