Read more about your team below, and do not hesitate to reach out with any questions or comments.
Molly Murphy, President
My name is Molly Murphy and I’m a third year law student from Moncton, New Brunswick. Before coming to UNB Law, I studied Psychology and Philosophy during my years at Acadia University, while remaining involved in student governance through a variety of elected capacities. I worked part-time at the Vaughan Memorial Library, and couldn't help but find myself behind the front desk again at the Gerard V. La Forest Law Library.
I understand and value the important role the Law Student Society plays in the lives of UNB law students. This past year I had the privilege of serving as the Vice- President of the Law Students' Society, where I was able to create this website, establish the LSS bi-weekly newsletter, organize events, oversee all of our clubs and societies, and provide guidance and assistance to students and for students. As First Year Executive Representative, I created new avenues to disseminate relevant information to the student body, worked to facilitate and strengthen relationships by organizing events that would create opportunities for community connections.
I will continue to support my fellow law students this year as your President and ensure that UNB Law is safe, accessible, and remains a positive learning environment for all members of our community to enjoy.
If you have any questions please reach out, we are here to make your experience the best it can be. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again and meeting our incoming class!
Kathleen Adams, Vice-President
Hello, Kathleen here,
I am beyond thrilled to serve you all at UNB Law as VP this year. I’m bringing my cumulative experiences from serving on multiple committees at UNB together to help you navigate the sometimes murky waters of law school. I’m exceptionally strong with communication and event planning, as seen in Orientation, conferences, and social events (amongst others) and would gladly assist anyone seeking a larger audience for their own endeavour. My goal is to take what I’ve learned and share it with you all, so that you may reap the benefit of my successes (and failures). If you ever want to reach out and talk about absolutely anything, I have a listening ear. I’m the prime example that law students come in all shapes and sizes, as I have a Masters in Art History from Queen’s University, as well as an undergrad degree from the best small undergraduate experience - StFX!
Chat soon, Kathleen.
Zachary Tweel, Treasurer
Hey Everyone! My name is Zach Tweel and I’m a third year law student originally from Stratford, Prince Edward Island. I received my BBA with a specialization in Finance and a Certificate in Public Administration from the University of Prince Edward Island. The first taste of student politics that I had was in the third year of my undergrad through serving as Vice President Finance of the UPEI Student Union where I was tasked with developing, maintaining, and presenting the annual budget and monthly financial statements to council, as well as serving as chair for all finance-related sub-committees. My hope is that this experience will help me to better serve all of you in my role as Treasurer of the Law Students’ Society for the upcoming school year! I would like to think that I am a fairly approachable person as I try to always maintain a positive attitude (except for whenever the Leafs are playing or if I’m losing at Catan), so please do not hesitate to reach out to me any questions, comments, or concerns that you may have! While I definitely don’t want to wish the summer away just yet, I am excited for the year that lies ahead and to seeing all the new and returning faces in September!
Aodhan Murphy, First-Year Executive
My name is Aodhan Murphy and I will be the First-Year Executive during this academic year at the Law Students’ Society. During my time at Acadia University, where I studied a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Political Science, I held a number of positions on my students’ union. What I learned, and what I can bring to student governance at UNB, is the need for an effective organizational structure, concise and consistent communication to students, and approachability among elected members. Checking these boxes means a functional Society that can advocate for law students to the administration, and host all the events that people know and love.
Hope to see you around.
