Articling Student

Will is an articling student at BLG’s Vancouver office for the 2022-2023 term.

Will is 2022 graduate of the University of Windsor Faculty of Law and the University of Detroit Mercy School of Law through the Canadian-American Dual JD program. Prior to coming to BLG, Will spent his 2L summer in-house at a major Canadian grocery chain. For his undergraduate studies, Will attended Seton Hall University in New Jersey, where he competed as a member of the school’s NCAA Division 1 swimming and diving team.

Will chose BLG after feeling an immediate connection with the firm’s Vancouver office throughout the interview process. Will is excited to be relocating to Vancouver from his hometown of Halifax, NS and looking forward to meeting more of the BLG team.

Will enjoys participating in multiple summer sports, skiing in the winter months and cheering on his alma mater’s Pirates basketball team in March Madness every spring.
