Bio

Sarah joined the firm as a summer student in 2022, and completes the JD/BCL programme at McGill’s Faculty of Law in December 2022. Prior to law school, she earned a BA in Human Rights and Legal Studies from Carleton University while working as a server and sommelier in fine dining, and later as a legislative reporter, primarily following the Senate Committee on Aboriginal Peoples.

At McGill, Sarah worked as a Senior Editor with the McGill Law Journal and as the Co-Founder and Co-Executive Editor of Rooted, a multimedia publication which explores and promotes Indigenous law and perspectives. Sarah also worked in the Faculty of Law as a research assistant on various topics in constitutional law, and as a volunteer with Pro Bono Students Canada, the Legal Information Clinic at McGill, and the Immigrant Workers Centre.

Outside the office, Sarah loves to run, cross-country ski, do yoga, explore local restaurants, and spend quality time with family and friends.
