: John Rogers, QC, ICD.D, presents Legal Leaders for Diversity and Inclusion scholarships to law students

July 11, 2016

Halifax partner John Rogers, QC, ICD.D, recently presented two Schulich School of Law students with scholarships on behalf of Legal Leaders for Diversity and Inclusion ("LLD").

Mike Coady and Ian Wilenius received an LLD scholarship each, which is designed to assist Canadian law students with disabilities. Both students noted that this scholarship will support them in their studies and allow them to become more independent: "It frees me up to do things like volunteer, stay active in my community and participate in board work, as well as focus on studying," said Mike. "It's nice knowing that these kinds of conversations and accommodations might take some of the onus off the person who's already facing challenges," stated Ian. John noted that he's excited to follow Mike and Ian as they progress through their careers and impact both their communities and the legal profession.
