McCarthy Tétrault presents Vestra Vox, Canada’s first national student law blog
October 13, 2016
Montreal, October 13, 2016 – The first of its kind in Canada, Vestra Vox, a national student law blog, launches today at VestraVox.com. Presented by McCarthy Tétrault, the blog provides an online space for law students at universities across Canada to share their insights on the subject of law with a wider audience, outside the confines of their law school.
“Vestra Vox is a unique concept – a space for students to share their analyses on legal issues, an opportunity to be part of the greater legal conversation, and a network to connect with other law students,” says Mason Gordon, the founder and Editor-in-Chief of Vestra Vox, and current McCarthy Tétrault associate.
Mason imagined the idea for Vestra Vox based on his own experiences as a law student. While law students have significant access and exposure to legal news and information, their perspectives, analyses and writings are not often shared outside their faculty. Vestra Vox aims to bridge that gap, to provide and maintain a viable space for students to connect with others across the country, and to have their works shared and read by the public.
Articles selected for publishing are submitted by current law students across the country. The board of editors, consisting of Mason Gordon as well as McCarthy Tétrault associates Scott Bergen, Bertrand Cossette and Ljiljana Stanic, will review all received submissions and select those for publication. Articles may be edited for grammar and accuracy and may be translated. For more information on the submission process, please visit www.vestravox.com/about.
Readers of Vestra Vox can expect to exclusively read student-authored content, which may consist of the following: synopses or explanations of legal principles, condensed versions of academic papers, analyses of contemporary cases, discussions of and updates on the latest legal news, and creative works and commentary from the student point-of-view.
To receive Vestra Vox in your inbox every time a new article is published, we encourage you to subscribe at VestraVox.com.
