Cydney Kane for VP Student Life

Hi everyone! My name is Cydney Kane and I am a second-year student seeking re-election as the Vice President Student Life for the Law Students’ Society. I am from Bedford, Nova Scotia. I have a Bachelor of Science in Biology from Mount Allison University (wondering how I ended up at law school? Same!). I volunteer with the Elizabeth Fry Society of Mainland Nova Scotia through Pro Bono, and with several other local non-profit organizations. On weekends, I teach dance to kids.

The VPSL is responsible for running the LSS’s online presence, overseeing student societies, and hosting laid-back events for the Weldon community. I love this position and want to hold it again, because it allows me to do what I love most about law school: work with all of you! In this role, I’ve been able to get to know so many of you that I otherwise might not have, I have shared in your exciting achievements and projects on our social media pages, and I have helped you enjoy law school outside of the classroom.

As your VPSL for 2018-2019, I have accomplished a lot of things that I’m proud of. These include:

  • Expanding our reach on social media with 2 new social media pages (Facebook and LinkedIn) and acquiring over 400 new followers
  • Leading a re-branding project for the LSS with a new logo, set of values, and list of services
  • Renovating our website in line with accessible design principles, updating existing content, and adding 9 new pages to the site
  • Building a new table booking and Square booking system that would both: meet our student societies’ needs, and cost the LSS nothing
  • Hosting a new Board Games Night event (in addition to coffeehouses) that I would like to see become an annual occurrence
  • Creating a new society registration process for better oversight on our student societies to help them accomplish their goals in Weldon and beyond

If re-elected for 2019-2020, I want to continue to build on these achievements, refine them for continuation beyond my time here at Schulich, and come up with new ideas to improve your lives outside of the classroom.
