It’s good to be back! Covid-19 may have changed some dynamics of the office, but it hasn’t kept it down. I’m excited to have the chance this summer to be part of a team that has been able to overcome many challenges brought on by these past few months. Daniel and Partners LLP is made up of a team that is always willing to lend a helping hand to others in order to keep things running smoothly. Although the future holds many uncertainties for us all, I am confident that we will get through this.
My second year of law school proved itself to be an exciting experience. I began the year by sitting on the Dean’s Hiring Committee where I represented the student body’s voice and vote when it came time to choosing the new Dean. I can easily remember how overwhelming the first year of law school can feel, so I was very happy to have had the opportunity to be one of the upper year orientation leaders for the incoming first year students. It wouldn’t feel like law school without playing in the annual rugby tournament. This year the tournament was held in Vancouver where we battled it out against the other western law schools.
While this coming fall will mark the beginning of the end to my law school career at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, British Columbia, the memories and friendships will carry on. Change can sometimes be intimidating, but I’m excited to turn the page and move on to the next chapter of my life by putting into practice what I will have spent the last three years learning in lecture halls. My hopes are that in this coming school year our global situation will improve and I will be able to participate in the Bowman National Tax Moot in Toronto.
Summering at Daniel and Partners LLP has been a great experience and has taught me elements of the profession that I would not have learned in the classroom. While I plan to continue to keep an open mind to all areas of law, I have a growing interest in the areas of real estate, business and land use planning.
