Anjali Sandhu Awarded A. Montague Israels Q.C. Prize

Congratulations to Anjali Sandhu on being awarded the A. Montague Israels Q.C. Prize by the Manitoba Bar Association on June 25, 2021.

The award is made on the basis of performance in all aspects of the Manitoba Bar Admission Program, earlier academic record, likelihood of future professional and personal accomplishments, and other interests and achievements both within and outside the study and application of law. The terms of the prize competition reflect the many interests and accomplishments of the late A.M. (Monty) Israels, Q.C. (1904-1973), a distinguished lawyer, respected leader of the Bar and the first Director of the Manitoba Law Society’s Bar Admission Course (now the CPLED Program).

Mr. Israels was also an active servant of the community, and a person with a great sense of passion and justice. Since 1979, the Manitoba Bar Association annually awards the prize to an articling student who possesses the professional and personal attributes of scholarship, character, skill and breadth of interest that Mr. Israels valued and exemplified in his own career and life.

Anjali joins a distinguished group of MLT Aikins alumni who have received the award including Rob Gabor, Jonathan Kroft and Melissa Cattini.

Please join us in extending a special congratulation to Anjali on this significant achievement.
