The Hennick Centre encouraged students to learn from Canadian leaders in the legal and business world through events, such as the Davies Business Law Lectures, the Hennick Medals of Distinction awards ceremonies and the Annual JD/MBA Conference. The mentorship program also connected me directly with graduates of the Osgoode-Schulich JD/MBA program, allowing me to gain valuable insights and advice.
