Katrina Brazzell

2018/2019 Articling Class, Toronto

Law School
University of Toronto
Queen's University

Katrina’s desire to constantly be challenged and to apply her skills to real life scenarios led her to the field of law.

She has an undergraduate degree in economics, a field she believes is very similar to law as they both focus on analytical thinking and problem solving, and require continuous learning. Katrina is looking forward to working in numerous practice areas to gain a broad range of experience and skills.

Katrina chose Davies for the opportunity to be mentored by our many outstanding female lawyers.

Which organization means a lot to you?

Animal Justice. In my first year leading the University of Toronto’s Student Animal Legal Defense Fund, we went to Ottawa to observe Animal Justice’s oral arguments before the Supreme Court of Canada. It was inspiring.

Whom have you learned the most from personally or professionally?

My grandfather practised law for over 50 years and maintained an extraordinary level of intellectual curiosity. He passed this on to me by showing an interest in my studies and encouraging me to always ask questions.

Where did you last travel to?

I spent six weeks volunteering and backpacking in Peru. A highlight of the trip was completing the five-day trek along the Salkantay Route to Machu Picchu.
