Cameron Rogers is a student employee of Aitken Robertson, currently in his final year of law school at Queen’s University. At Queen’s Cameron has been involved in Legal Aid, the Law Journal and various litigation activities.
Cameron has had an interest in criminal law for many years. Before law school, in undergrad, he worked as a student advocate providing counsel to students on a wide range of issues and in front of various tribunals. These issues consisted of both academic and non-academic misconduct such as plagiarism, bringing unauthorized notes into an exam, assault, both sexual and non-sexual, theft and vandalism. In this position he was able to help many students reach ideal outcomes in their cases. For his work, he was awarded the Just Desserts award by the student union for his contribution to the students.
In law school, Cameron has continued to be involved in criminal law activities. In second year, he represented Queen’s nationally for the Gale Cup Moot. In this position, he appealed a recent Supreme Court decision, conducted research, and argued the position in front of superior court and court of appeal judges in Toronto. This year, he is involved in coaching the team and works with both the appellant and respondent teams to develop research, argumentation, and oral advocacy skills.
Outside of school, Cameron is particularly fond of music – having played guitar for 20 years. On a pre-Covid Friday you could catch him at a local concert hall watching the bands. In addition, he enjoys rugby and reading – particularly political science and history.
