My name is Tochi Nwaokocha, and I am the Vice President External for the Law Students' Society. As a student representative, my duties are to Liaise with the Thunder Bay Law Association (TBLA) and Lakehead University Student Union (LUSU).
I am also tasked with organizing the Law vs Med Games (in conjunction with the student council of NOSM), appointing interested students to Senate standing committees, and organizing student outreach opportunities in the local community. I hold an Honors Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Lakehead University. During my undergraduate degree at Lakehead University, I was the president of the Student Refugee Program. While helping student refugee’s settle into their new community, from assisting them in filling out documents, to ensuring they understand the privileges they are entitled to as individuals living in Canada, I began to love the idea of taking the humanity I was raised with and applying it into my everyday life. This is what I want to do with the Law.
My experience at the Bora Laskin faculty of Law has been amazing, and this is due to the great work of the university administration and our hard-working professors. Outside of Law school you will find me either watching soccer, playing soccer or reading about soccer.
