Law School at UBC: A Great Education Without Meanness

We studied hard, we drank a lot of coffee and played a lot of pinball, and we supported each other like crazy. Admittedly, it was a pretty sexist era for women law students, but the overall atmosphere was one of camaraderie. When one of our First Nations co-students wasn't present at a final exam, our section refused to write the exam until we could check on him. Practicing law afterwards in California, I learned how fortunate we truly were to get such a great education in both law and heart.
