Summer Law Student

As a Summer Law Student, Kierra is assisting lawyers on a wide variety of tasks within our Business and Disputes groups.

Prior to attending law school, Kierra received a Bachelor of Art’s Degree in Criminal Justice from the University of the Fraser Valley.

Kierra chose to work at BLG because of the diverse practice areas, welcoming environment, and the excellent mentorship that begins at the summer student level, as well as, the firm’s dedication to their diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

In her spare time, Kierra likes to try out different workout classes in Vancouver, ranging from pilates to boxing to HIIT workouts. She also enjoys going on runs at the beach and long walks with her friends! Aside from working out, Kierra also really enjoys reading romance novels.
