What is a research poster? 

A research poster is a visual representation highlighting the important aspects of research you have done or are doing in a class, for a paper or journal article. Posters are intended to attract interested viewers and provide an opportunity for you to engage your audience in a very brief presentation or discussion of your work (1-3 minutes).

Who is eligible to compete?

Who is my audience? 

The competition will take place on March 13, 2019 from 12pm (noon) until 1:15 p.m. on the Mezzanine Level of the College of Law. All faculty, staff and students will be invited to attend, as well as members of the Dean’s Forum on Access to Justice, who include the Chief Justices of each level of court in Saskatchewan, representatives from the Law Society of Saskatchewan, the Canadian Bar Association, Public Legal Education Association, CLASSIC, Pro Bono Students Canada and other invited guests. 

How do I participate?
