Lakehead Law Students' Society

Advocates for the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law Student Body


Justis Danto-Clancy

My name is Justis Danto-Clancy. I am the 2018/2019 President of the Lakehead Law Students' Society. I graduated from The University of King's College in Halifax, NS in 2011. I worked in Theatre, Film, and Wilderness Canoe Tripping before deciding to return to law school in 2018. So far, my work at Ontario Legal clinics has inspired me to delve deeper into criminal defence, but I remain open-minded about where my career path may lead. I am excited for the coming year and am proud to have the opportunity to advocate for the student body at The Bora Laskin Faculty of Law.

Vice-President Academic

Rob Stefanelli

 My name is Rob Stefanelli and I am your 2019/2020 Vice-President Academic of the Lakehead Law Students’ Society.


As the VP Academic, I am responsible for addressing student concerns related to the curriculum, resources, faculty, or any other academic issues at the Bora Laskin Faculty of Laws.


In 1L, my favourite class was Tort Law and that sparked my interest in Insurance and Tort Liability. I have enjoyed the welcoming and supportive environment at Bora Laskin thus far, and I am most excited about introducing new programming to assist 1L students with the transition to law school.


What I wished I knew entering 1L: Go to all your tutorials, even if you think you know the material! Your Dean’s Fellows are an invaluable resource.


To get in touch with me, you can send me an email (rstefane@lakeheadu.ca) or Facebook (facebook.com/robstef), and I am always happy to chat!

Vice-President Finance

Jordan Petruska

My name is Jordan Petruska and I am a second-year student at the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law here at Lakehead University. As your Vice President of Finance, I oversee all Club and Event spending and financial health. I completed my undergraduate degree at Wilfrid Laurier University where I studied Political Science and Global Studies. I have a keen interest in Civil Litigation, Corporate, and Estate Law and my favourite 1L class was Criminal Law with Dr. Francis Chapman.


They say your law school experience is what you make of it and my experience here at Bora Laskin has been surrounded by my friendly fellow students and supporting professors. My hobbies include hanging with friends, and watching football. I am very approachable so if you have any questions or concerns about the LSS or law school in general please reach out to me.

Vice President Operations

Stephanie Scott

My name is Stephanie Scott and I am the Vice President of Operations this year. My portfolio includes all of the events LSS throws throughout the year! My favourite class in 1L was Criminal Law, as I was able to bring my years of acquired Real Housewives knowledge to the class. I’m so excited for the events this year, especially Law Ball! In 1L, try everything and go to everything you can and have fun!  


Feel free to contact me anytime at sscott8@lakeheadu.ca or vpopps@lakeheadu.ca

Vice-President External Affairs

Tochi Nwaokocha

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.


If you have any questions or would like to know more about my role, please contact me via my email; Tenwaoko@lakeheadu.ca.

Vice-President Fundraising

Sean Cahill

My name is Sean Cahill and I am the VP of Fundraising of the Lakehead Law Student's Society. I take care of all things fundraising related, including our law school clothing orders.


I completed my undergrad at Brock University majoring in Business Administration. After my first year of law school I have realized that I have a strong interest in contract law as well as tort law.


My experience at Bora Laskin has been great so far and I am very excited about the courses offered in second year as well as all the awesome LSS events that will be held this upcoming year. In 1L I wish I knew to start a study group early in the year, and to not stress too much.


School related or not, feel free to reach out to me at any time. You can send me an email or stop me in the halls! slcahill@lakeheadu.ca
