Julia Genovese

1L Representative

Hello Friends!

My name is Julia Genovese and I am pleased to be one of the 1L Reps for 2017! I grew up in Hespeler, Ontario and graduated from the University of Guelph with a degree in Criminal Justice and Public Policy in 2014. My work experience includes everything from building vehicles in a Lexus manufacturing plant to conducting reintegration training within youth corrections facilities.

 When I’m not in class, the Fraser Lounge, or in the library, I can usually be found either hanging out with my cats, adventuring around the city, or skydiving. Orientation Week was an amazing experience for me - it helped me get acquainted with Victoria, and allowed me to meet many of my awesome classmates. Along with Kurt, I am hoping to co-ordinate a week of events for next year that lives up to the great week that we had this year! 

Kurtas Welch 

1L Representative


My name is Kurtas Welch and I have the privilege of being one of two 1L Reps for the 2017-2018 year. I hail from Calgary, Alberta, where I graduated from Mount Royal University with a Bachelors in Psychology. I've been working as a bartender for almost a decade and I find as many ways as possible to use those skills. 

Mostly I like to make sure everyone around me is having a great time and I look forward to doing that for every law student this and next year! When I'm not doing homework I like to play basketball or videogames, but I never say no to an opportunity to do anything else. I also find pleasure in organizing social gatherings so if you ever think of something fun you would want to do, come let me know and we can make it happen!
