2021 - Fall Term
Kirsten is a second-year student at the University of Ottawa in the Faculty of English Common Law. Passionate about the intersections between gender, Indigenous rights, climate change policy, technology, and equality, Kirsten hopes to one day practice law in a relating field. She is also a fierce advocate for sexual violence prevention and is currently a workshop coordinator for the Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund’s “Only Yes Means Yes” consent workshops for Ottawa high school students. She spent this past summer working at the Law Commission of Ontario researching environmental rights, and her first year working as a bilingual assistant editor at the Ottawa Law Review and research assistant at the Centre for Law, Technology and Public Policy.
Before law school, Kirsten completed an Honours Specialization Degree in Political Science at Western University. Outside school, you can find Kirsten skiing every chance she can get and striking out more often than she would like to admit on her school’s amateur softball team. She hopes to graduate law school in the Spring of 2023.
