Julia Russell

Summer Law Student


Julia is a summer student at BLG’s Toronto office for the 2023 summer term.

As a law student, Julia takes great pride in volunteering for societies and associations she is passionate about. She advocates for her peers as a representative on the Law Students’ Society and serves as a volunteer for the Fredericton Legal Advice Clinic where she provides advice and assistance to low-income earners. Prior to law school, Julia worked in the finance field where she developed exceptional analytical and problem-solving skills that will complement her career in the legal profession.

Julia chose BLG because she was attracted to the firm’s commitment to its students and the opportunity to learn from exceptional articling students, associates, and partners. Each BLG employee Julia interacted with was friendly, supportive, and possessed a strong sense of passion for their work. This made choosing to work at BLG an easy decision for Julia.

In Julia’s spare time you can find her working out at the gym, staying active by enjoying time outside with friends and family, or exploring new coffee shops.
