Husayn previously worked for various federal government departments in areas of social policy, including 2SLGBTQ+ and Indigenous inclusion. During law school, they were an Associate Editor for the Ottawa Law Review and worked as a Teaching Assistant for the first-year Public and Constitutional Law course. For the last two years, Husayn worked at a boutique firm specializing in labour, employment, privacy, and aviation law.

Husayn chose BLG for the firm’s leading disputes practice, particularly in international commercial arbitration matters. They were also impressed by the friendly and community-oriented team, and the firm’s commitment to advancing equity, diversity, and inclusion initiatives within the legal profession.
