Volume 4, Issue 12, (Originally Published on 21 October 2013)
Given our recently overbooked speak¬ing schedule, De Minimis was unable to provide the Class of 2013 Valedictory Address. (Thanks for the invite, though!) For that reason, and to assuage those who were forlorn due to our absence, we thought to offer some remarks at the end of Semester Two, 2013.
In the two years since our re-birth in 2012, De Minimis has witnessed three LSS Presidents come and go, and, inci¬dentally, three Prime Ministers, too. We will surely remember their respective accomplishments, at least as much as they’ll remind us.
We would like to say thank you to our readership, the lovers and the haters, the MLS students and, apparently, the faculty and staff who have started your academic weeks with us.
Whether you nabbed a copy of De Minimis to catch one of our feature sto¬ries, or because you ran out of paper to shred or bookmark your textbooks with, we’ve worked hard to publish something of interest to everyone.
To that end, we’ve covered student elections, reported on a slew of speakers and panels, and given students an outlet to express themselves and share their thoughts and experiences in and out of Law School.
But, seriously, who really has a life out of Law School? To those just escap¬ing the confines of this (literally) ivory tower, bon courage!
And for those sticking around, if you have enjoyed the weekly reads, why not consider getting involved?
Our weekly endeavour is only as good as the talent that take a little time out of their gruelling academic schedules to report, opine, offer clearly professional advice and deliver entertainment to the cohorts of jurisprudes.
And to our committed staff and con¬tributers, a major thank you. Running a volunteer-driven newspaper couldn’t manage without you.
