Following her trailblazing experience as one of Ross Nasseri’s first two summer students, Lauren is excited to return to the Firm as an articling student. During her summer last year, Lauren drafted motion materials for two successful motions and worked closely with a partner on a successful arbitration.
Lauren completed her JD at the University of Ottawa. While at uOttawa, Lauren volunteered at Reach Canada, a legal referral service for people with disabilities. She also worked at the Ticket Defence Program, aiding vulnerable populations with their costly city tickets. In her second year, Lauren was chosen to be part of the Writing Leader Program, where upper-year students with strong legal writing skills help other students to become better legal writers.
One highlight of Lauren’s law school career was being selected to present her research on inmate voting practices at the Ottawa Law Review’s Annual Research Colloquium. She further cultivated her interest in this area at the University’s Prison Law Clinic, where Lauren spearheaded publishing an article in the CBC about prison rights.
Prior to attending law school, Lauren worked at a start-up co-working space where she oversaw daily operations, business development and client management. Lauren graduated Suma Cum Laude from McMaster University with an Honours degree in History and Communications.
