Congratulations to the 2023-2024 secondary school essay contest winner, runner up

The Law Society congratulates essay contest winner Pui Chi (Gigi) Lau from Prince of Wales Secondary School in Vancouver and runner-up Anita Pan from York House School in Vancouver for their exceptional essays on the rule of law. The two winning essays are available on the Law Society’s website.

Participants in this year’s contest were asked to write an essay on the greatest threat to the rule of law and the steps they can take to defend it. The winner and runner-up were awarded $1,000 and $500 respectively and both attended the Benchers’ meeting on July 5 to be recognized for their achievements.

The Law Society launched the annual essay contest in 2015 to enhance students’ knowledge of the importance of the rule of law and to encourage participation in civic life. The 2024-2025 essay contest and topic will be revealed in the fall.
