The Board of Directors of the Société québécoise de droit international decided on November 3rd, 2015 to nominate Léa Lemay Langlois and Julie Roy as Co-presidents of the Society’s Student Circle. They succeed Kristine Plouffe-Malette. The Society takes this opportunity to thank the Circle’s Co-founder and outgoing president for her outstanding work and warmly welcomes the new Co-presidents.
Formed in 2007, the Society’s Circle aims to offer a forum for university students of all academic levels, mainly enrolled in faculties of law in Quebec, to share their interest in international law. It organizes on a yearly basis conferences and symposium bringing together students and professors.
