To the countless fans worldwide, we’re back! And for the first time readers, welcome!
As the blog is wholly student run [insert boiler plate disclaimer to protect the firm here…], we aim to give you the inside scoop about Cassels Brock and also what being a summer student at a Bay Street law firm actually means. Our team of smart, savvy and good-looking summer students will share our experiences working at CBB to shed some light on what it’s like to work here.
I am thrilled to introduce to you the 2013 CBB blogging team! Along the way there will be many guest bloggers, stretching from other students to partners, so stay tuned!
Without further ado, here we go:
Meredith “Mere” Bacal
Osgoode Hall Law School:
Meredith is a research machine. She’s researched for Canadian Heritage, Dean Sossin at Osgoode Hall and was a research assistant at the Ivey School of Business. You know that whatever she says is true, because she read it – in a book.
Nicholas “Nick” Carmichael
Dalhousie Law School:
Nick worked as a cook at a prominent restaurant in downtown Toronto! When he’s not blogging or doing excellent work, you can find him in his office spicing up the free lunches!
Andrew “Chanman” Chan
U of T Law School:
While at the Ivey School of Business, he was a member of the Mustangs varsity soccer team. Most importantly, he is an associate editor for the Journal of International Law and International Relations. So if you loved reading that you’re going to love reading his blogs!
Caroline “Duran” Durran
University of British Columbia:
Caroline is part of the first ever Cassels Brock student program at CBB in Vancouver! She will be blogging about her experiences as a student in the Vancouver office, so stay tuned for ‘Westcoast Wednesdays’ with Caroline! Also, she went to band camp.
Roey “Roy E. Fisher” Fishman
What can I say about myself other than that I’m am charming and good looking? Well, I drink water out of my coffee mug to fit in with the lawyers and make friends at the coffee machines.
Amir “Cookie Monster” Har-Gil
University of Windsor:
Amir worked as a karate instructor and owned a window cleaning business. When he’s not working or karate chopping large files, he is out on the 19th floor windows showing the cleaners how it’s done; in a suit.
Before going to Queen’s, Michelle was fortunate enough to go to Western to do an HBA at Ivey. Michelle is a serious dancer and is seen frequenting the local salsa saloons.
