2023 - Fall Term
Madison is a third-year law student in the English Common Law section at the University of Ottawa. Prior to law school, she completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with a concentration in Public Law at Brock University.
This past summer, Madison summered at WeirFoulds LLP, where she received hands on experience in areas of commercial litigation, employment law, and regulatory work. Since law school, Madison has developed a strong passion for grassroots work and community-based initiatives. As a Research Assistant for the Ottawa People’s Commission on the Convoy Occupation, she attended community meetings to listen to residents share their personal experiences with the Convoy. She subsequently wrote a comparative piece on the inherent limits on the right to protest.
As a Dean’s Fellow and Legal Writing Leader at the University of Ottawa, Madison has spent much of her law school career teaching first year students how to conduct legal research and write persuasively.
Madison spends her free time exploring Ottawa and focusing on her extracurriculars. She is particularly proud of her work with Elephant in the Room, a club that promotes the discussion of mental health in the legal profession.
