Emily is a summer student at BLG’s Toronto office for the 2021 summer term. She is focusing on business law.
As a law student, Emily is the Co-President of the Queen’s Real Estate Law Association and a volunteer for Pro Bono Students Canada. Prior to attending law school, Emily completed her Honours Bachelor of Arts at the University of Toronto specializing in political science and international relations. During Emily’s undergraduate degree, she worked as a Sales Professional at a luxury jewelry retailer and as an intern assistant at a prominent architectural firm in Toronto.
Emily chose to work at BLG because of the firm’s collaborative and collegial culture. During the summer recruitment process, Emily was able to engage with a number of BLG lawyers and students, and was impressed by their remarks on the student experience and the exposure that students are able to have to a variety of different practice areas.
In her spare time, Emily enjoys attending concerts and music festivals, running 5-10K races, and catching up on reality TV.
