Mallie is a summer student at BLG’s Toronto office for the 2023 summer term. She is focusing on Disputes.

Mallie plays an active role in the Windsor Law community through her mentorship of 1L students with University of Windsor’s Peer Mentorship Program and her role as Teaching Assistant for 1L Legal Research and Writing. In her first year of law school, Mallie volunteered with Community Legal Aid at University of Windsor, facilitating access to justice for residents of Windsor. She also worked as a Research Assistant at University of Detroit Mercy School of Law, focusing on information privacy at the Canada-U.S. border.

Prior to attending law school, Mallie worked at the Barbra Schlifer Clinic, a legal clinic in Toronto that assists women who have experienced domestic violence.

Mallie chose BLG because of the firm’s long-established reputation for exceptional client service, the national scope of its multi-disciplinary practice and the importance it attaches to fostering a collegial and inclusive environment.

In her spare time, Mallie enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading thriller novels, and staying active by running and practicing yoga.
