Michelle, Osgoode Law student on resumption of classes

Michelle, an Osgoode law student, describes some of the Osgoode student opposition to the re-opening of Osgoode classes on December 5, 2008. She states that “there are Osgoode students who feel strongly for various reasons that we shouldn’t be crossing the picket lines….we are not some tiny fringe of Osgoode society that is being difficult. We are reasonable students, we are committed students, we are good students that are just really concerned that we are being put in an uncomfortable position and an unfair position.”
