Many of you may have noticed that the Orientation Guide is finally looking a little less bare than it was last week! Being the easily excitable person that I am, I remember pouring over the UBC Law website for any information I could find on UBC, Vancouver, and what my new life as a law student would be like. For those of you wondering the same, I hope that the Orientation Guide will answer some of your questions.
Check out UBC Law Student Life for a better idea of all of the fun and exciting events, clubs, programs, sports teams, publications and organizations you can take part in. UBC Law Academic Life also includes information on what your courses will be like and if you have the time, some great books to read before 1L. If you are new to UBC or curious as to how the Faculty of Law will differ from your undergrad experience, look into the Other Student Resources. I have also included Useful Links to other websites you may need to use closer to the start of classes and during the year. For students new to Vancouver (just like I was last year) I am working on a Vancouver Guide to help you get to know the city a bit better. Finally, keep checking back for welcome letters from the Dean and the Law Students’ Society (LSS), your course schedule, and what’s in store for Orientation Week 2010!
If any of you have questions about anything you have read on the website or would like to see more information on certain areas/topics give me a shout and I will do my best to update it!
As for now, keep enjoying the summer and hopefully some sun!
Your Orientation Coordinator,

Hey future law students,
Welcome to the UBC Law Orientation 2010 Blog! While this is my first time blogging I (Kaitlyn Meyer) will do my best to keep you up to date with everything I am working on this summer for orientation. If you have any questions, suggestions, concerns, ideas, or just feel like chatting please feel free to send an email my way (firstname.lastname@example.org) or give me a shout at (604) 827-3552. Also, for all those interested in reading the awesome blog created by last year’s orientation coordinator you can find it at http://ubclaworientation.blogspot.com/. It has tons of great info on preparing for 1L and is definitely worth checking out!
In the meantime, sit tight and check back soon for more information on what’s in store for Orientation Week, first year, student living in Vancouver and hopefully (if I’m creative enough) much, much more!
your Orientation Coordinator,
