As a Summer Law Student, Salman is assisting lawyers on a wide variety of tasks within our Business and Disputes groups.

Prior to attending law school, Salman received a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Calgary and worked for an immigration not-for profit.

As a law student, Salman was a research assistant for the Assistant Dean and the Co-President of the South Asian Law Students Association. Salman also worked alongside Professor Craig Jones, KC on a Human Rights Tribunal file and was the first-place championship winner of the National Immigration, Refugee, and Citizenship Law Moot.

Salman chose to work at BLG after speaking with multiple lawyers and students at the firm- each conveying BLG’s commitment to supporting students with a strong professional development program while ensuring the firm remains a social and collaborative environment.
