Osgoode Hall Dean experiences law school from a wheelchair for a day

October 16, 2007

The Dean of Osgoode Hall Law School at York University went to class in a wheelchair last Thursday as part of the annual "Dean for a Day" contest.  This year, Michale Dytyniak, a first-year law student with cerebral palsy, wrote the winning essay.  The contest gives the Dean an opportunity to see his job from the perspective of a student, and found this year's switch both humbling and challenging.  Dytyniak's on-campus experience was delayed by a front entrance without a door opener.
