Emma is a summer student with the Disputes Commercial and Construction group (General Litigation), and the Corporate and Capital Markets group (General Business). She is entering her final year at the Peter A. Allard School of Law (UBC).

Emma has previously advised low-income clients in the Greater Vancouver Area with the Law Students’ Legal Advice Program. She has represented clients in community court, along with other advocacy work involving housing, employment, and human rights issues.

Emma chose to work at BLG because it was clear that BLG not only emphasized legal excellence and high-quality work, but also a collaborative environment where people could truly be themselves.

In her spare time, Emma enjoys cooking, running, and spending time outdoors with family and friends.
