Julian is a summer student at BLG’s Calgary office. He is focusing on business law.
Julian is currently in his first year of law school at Robson Hall in Winnipeg. He is a member of the school’s brand-new bilingual “Access to Justice in French” program.
Prior to law school, Julian earned a BA (Honours) degree in Political Studies and worked as a professional drummer in all genres ranging from R&B to punk-rock. He volunteers with Creative Manitoba through Pro Bono Students Canada to provide legal and business information to artists, and to research barriers that affect BIPOC artists and their available resources. In his work as a grant writer, Julian also helps Canadian artists to secure grant funding for their music projects. While in undergrad, Julian owned and grew a niche marketing business that serviced retail and real estate clients in Manitoba.
Julian chose to work at BLG after attending the firm’s webinars and meeting with many of its past summer students and current lawyers. It became clear to him that BLG is a forward-thinking firm that shares a keen interest in many burgeoning areas of the law. Its top-tier practice groups are filled with friendly, intelligent, and passionate people who build each other up and are as keen to share and teach as they are to listen and learn. The genuine sense of community and inclusion that Julian felt from his first interactions with the firm struck a chord.
In Julian’s spare time, he enjoys live music and comedy shows, songwriting with friends, campfire cooking in the outback and listening to the NY Times’ “The Daily” podcast.
