Bio

Kiana will complete the BCL/JD programme at McGill’s Faculty of Law in December 2022 and currently works as a summer student at the firm.

Kiana aims to apply her wide-ranging curiosity to solving concrete problems. Prior to law school, Kiana obtained her Bachelor of Arts & Science in Cell/Molecular Biology and Philosophy from McGill University. During this time, she worked as a translation editor and a debate coach while spending her weekends at debating competitions. She is a nationally and internationally ranked debater and was named Top Debater in Canada in 2018.

She has since worked on various non-profit initiatives and campaigns, ranging from the development of youth civil engagement projects to the provision of material resources for refugee claimants settling in Canada.

While in law school, Kiana worked as the Director of Research for the Legal Information Clinic at McGill, a bilingual, student-run clinic that provides free legal information to community members and students. She was also the Executive French Editor of the McGill Journal of Law and Health and a volunteer for the International Refugee Assistance Program’s McGill Chapter.

Outside of the office, Kiana enjoys cooking with her friends, discovering new music, and teaching high school students about debate and global issues.
