Claire is drawn to the problem-solving and analytical reasoning required to solve complex legal problems.

What are the essential qualities of a good lawyer?

Humility and curiosity – regardless of how many years someone has been practising, there are always things to learn and ways to improve oneself. Throughout my life, I have tried to embody these values by seeking out new experiences and by having an open mind, which I hope will serve me well at Davies.

Is there an organization that means a lot to you?

OrKidstra is an Ottawa-based charitable organization that empowers kids from underserved areas through music. The acapella group of which I was a part throughout my undergrad would put on a show every year, with proceeds donated to this great organization.
