Welcome to Vestra Vox, an online space for law students across Canada to share their insights and analyses on all things legal.

The law student perspective is often not shared in the public sphere and tends to be limited to the confines of academia – we aim to change that. In the midst of their legal studies, law students have unique and refreshing insights on legal matters, from contemporary issues to historical precedent-setting cases, that add tremendous value to the greater conversation.

Here at Vestra Vox, you will read articles written by current law students on a variety of legal topics including:

  • updates on legal news,
  • condensed versions of university term papers,
  • synopses or explanations of legal principles,
  • analyses of recent cases,
  • discussions of contemporary legal issues,
  • creative works and commentary from the law student perspective.
