Erica McLachlan



Erica is a summer student at BLG’s Toronto office for the summer of 2020.

As a law student, Erica co-leads a digital verification working group for her law school’s International Human Rights Program, co-founded a peer mental health support program, has volunteered at a South African pro bono legal clinic, and performs in the law school’s annual sketch show. Prior to law school, she worked on the board of two not-for-profits and was engaged in provincial advocacy work in Alberta.

Erica was drawn to BLG after having the opportunity to talk to students and lawyers at the firm’s annual Client Counselling Competition. BLG was an environment where she could learn, grow and meaningfully contribute to the firm’s work.
