Why are you interested in practising law?

My passion for law is rooted in my desire to have a fulsome understanding of technological regulation in Canada. As AI continues to develop at an increasingly rapid pace, I’m interested in the tangible applications of computer science to the law, with a specific interest in how AI can facilitate access to justice and legal assistance.

What are you most looking forward to during your time at Davies?

I am excited to diversify my legal skill set and gain knowledge in new areas of law. Coming from a background in intellectual property law, I know that my articling year will allow me to explore several new practice areas and determine my true passions. I also am enthusiastic to meet a new team of legal professionals and expand my legal network in my home city of Toronto!

Is there a skill you would like to learn? Why?

I would love to increase my French-speaking skills. I studied the language for many years until the pandemic hit and haven’t quite picked it up again. I hope to speak French fluently in the future.
