Dean Daniel Jutras hosted his annual end-of-year festive reception on December 13, inviting members of the McGill Law community to exchange good wishes before everyone heads out on vacation. We take this opportunity to wish each and everyone happy holidays and a peaceful and prosperous new year.

Our Institute of Air & Space Law also hosted a holiday cocktail on November 30, where IASL students, alumni and professors mingled and enjoyed festive cheer, at the home of Ann and John T. Keenan (BCL’67, LLM’69) (see pictures).
