Sara Arias Garcia

Articling Student


Sara is a student at BLG’s Ottawa office for the 2022 summer term. She is focusing on Disputes and Corporate law.

Sara is an internationally trained lawyer who is currently completing the National Committee of Accreditation process to practice law in Canada. Sara joined BLG in 2021 to continue to expand her knowledge of Business Immigration.

As a student, Sara worked as a research assistant at the University of Ottawa and focused on environmental issues.

Prior to moving to Canada, Sara worked as a legal assistant in the Congress of the Republic of Colombia, where she gained valuable knowledge about Colombia’s legislative process and drafted legislative proposals.

Sara chose to work at BLG because working in a diverse and inclusive environment is important to her as an immigrant. She was attracted to the firm’s innovation pillar, which provides her the opportunity to develop a progressive, forward-thinking mindset in order to adapt to continuous changes.

In her spare time, Sara enjoys reading about personal development, salsa dancing and trying new restaurants.
