The announcement was made by Mya Rimon, assistant dean, students, Osgoode Hall Law School, on July 27.

LAWS is designed to deliver an education program aimed at supporting, guiding and motivating high-school students facing challenges to success.

Dimitrova is a graduate of the University of Toronto Faculty of Law (’10) and has been involved with the LAWS program since its early days, as a volunteer in 2007-08 and a summer student in 2009-10.

Since 2013, Dimitrova has been the full-time LAWS program coordinator at Osgoode, where she works with the program’s partner high schools in the Jane-Finch community. Last year, Dimitrova served as the acting director of LAWS for several months.

“We are thrilled that Eleonora’s experience, talent and energy will continue to benefit the law schools at U of T and Osgoode and the 1,000-plus youth in our communities who are involved in LAWS each year,” said Rimon, adding that recruiting is underway for the Osgoode LAWS program coordinator.
