Jillian (Jill) Steele

Summer Law Student

Toronto

Jillian is a summer student at BLG’s Toronto office for the 2023 summer term. She is focusing on health law.

As a law student, Jillian volunteers with the Elizabeth Fry Society, serves on the executive committee of the Dalhousie Health Law Society, is a co-founder and co-president of the Mental Health and Wellness Society, is a student representative on the Teaching and Teaching Evaluation Committee, and is a reference editor for the Dalhousie Law Journal. Prior to joining BLG, Jillian worked at a boutique civil litigation law firm and as an Occupational Therapist for a private rehabilitation company in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Jillian chose to work at BLG after learning about the comprehensive mentorship and training program for both summer students and junior associates, and the wealth of expertise that BLG has in the field of health law. It became clear during the interview process how passionate, dedicated, and collaborative all the lawyers at BLG are.

In Jillian’s spare time you can find her attending a spin or dance class, skiing, going on a hike with friends, listening to a new podcast or exploring local coffee shops.
