Schulich-Osgoode MBA/JD students take home LawWithoutWalls awards
MBA/JD students Al Hounsell and Brendan Monahan have received awards from the University of Miami School of Law’s innovative LawWithoutWalls program.
Monahan (pictured above) was a member of the winning team for substance for LWOW X Compliance on April 10. Hounsell (pictured below) was a member of the winning team for substance for LWOW X on March 27.
According to the program organizers, the winning team for substance is the team with “the most substantively sound Project of Worth. The winning team for substance was clearly the product of extensive research, effective understanding of the problem, synthesis of innovation, financial investigation, and a well-thought plan to bring the Project of Worth to market.”
LawWithoutWalls is an international academic program where students work with scholars, legal professionals and business experts from around the world to create a business plan in response to a current problem in legal education or practice. While exploring innovations in global legal education and practice, participating students also hone the critical skills needed by legal and business professionals of the future such as presentation, branding, business planning, social media, technology, innovative research, and idea generation. The program concludes with a closing conference where the business plans are judged by a multidisciplinary panel of venture capitalists, lawyers, academics, entrepreneurs and business professionals.
It was the second year in a row that Osgoode Hall Law School and the Schulich School of Business have been invited to participate in the LawWithoutWalls program. The Jay and Barbara Hennick Centre for Business and Law organized the MBA/JD students’ participation in the program.
