Sydney Snape was recently honoured by The Royal Society of Canada with the inaugural Justice Rosalie Silberman Abella Prize for TRU Law, established to recognize Justice Abella’s visionary intellectual contributions and commitment to building equality and equity across Canadian Society and beyond. The award is presented annually to a graduating law student in each of Canada’s law schools who is most likely to positively influence equity and social justice in Canada or globally. During her time in law school, Sydney served as President of TRU OUTlaws; Team Lead of Pro Bono Students Canada – TRU Chapter; Student Body Representative of the TRU Faculty of Law Equity Committee; and Director of the Kamloops Pride Association. She was also previously awarded the Law Foundation Public Interest Award (2020-2021). Sydney summered with the firm in 2021 and returns this spring as an Articling Student. Congratulations Sydney!
