Sara is a Canadian lawyer, licensed in good standing with the Law Society of Ontario. She practices in the area of Wills and Estates, and is employed at a major bank where she enjoys a wonderful work life balance and her dream job.
She completed her undergraduate education at York University with a Joint Honours in Criminology and Political Science, and she then went on to complete her law degree at the University of Sussex in the UK. When she returned to Canada she completed an LLM in Taxation at Osgoode Hall Law School, and further added to her expertise by completing the Internationally recognized Society of Estate and Trust Practitioners Diploma program.
It was during her final year of her undergraduate degree where she encountered an Osgoode Hall Law School student that shared some information that would change the entire course of her education and journey to becoming a lawyer. This information led Sara to conduct research. In doing so she learned she could pursue both of her passions at the same time, pursuing a legal career and international travelling.
Sara did not write the LSAT. She was aware that it constitutes a systemic barrier for students in accessing law schools. It is limited to US and Canadian Law schools, and not applicable to UK law school application process. Having a mentor has been instrumental in Sara’s journey to becoming a successful and joyous lawyer. Sara’s decision to study abroad was one of her best decisions she‘s made and for that reason she has worked as an Ambassador and Consultant in the past for Canada Law From Abroad. Sara had the opportunity to travel to Amsterdam, Paris, Madrid, Toledo, Milan, Venice and other major destinations within the UK all while studying law.
Sara is now in a position to mentor and provide key information, mentoring and counselling for students on the advantages of pursuing law and law related degrees while incorporating key career planning tips and information that helped her succeed. Sara enjoys volunteering in various extra curricular activities including serving at her local church and she is a member of the BlackNorth Initiative Education Committee and BlackNorth Initiative Mentoring and Sponsorship Subcommittee. Sara has recently been honoured with the Lawyer Monthly, Women in Law Awards 2020.
