Dear M. Schmidt,


My name is Mireille, and I am a civil law student at the University of Ottawa.  I have done legal research for activists on campus and have found it very rewarding. I am trying to start a group on campus to do legal research for activism.  This would allow me to get some help with the work and would ultimately show students that they can do so much more with their degree.


I want to thank you for writing Disciplined Minds.  I hated my law school experience but could not understand why until I read your book.  It has had a profound effect on me and has led to many changes in my life.  Once again, thank you.
