Chanelle Willard, Articling Student
I recently completed my J.D. from the Programme de common law en français (Juris Doctor) at the University of Ottawa. Prior to attending law school, I studied Science de l’activité physique (Human Kinetics) with a particular focus on psychology.
During my studies, I worked at the Parliament of Canada as a Proceedings and Verification Officer in the House of Commons. I also had the opportunity to work as a Travel Consultant for the Government of Ontario. Last but not least, I am the proud owner of a small business.
Throughout law school, I’ve volunteered with the Health Professions Appeal and Review Board. I had the opportunity to draft countless summaries of decisions made by the Board. I also volunteered with Pro Bono Ottawa where I conducted daily consultations at the Ottawa Court Support Center. Much of my time was spent participating in the Women’s Legal Mentorship Program where I helped facilitate the transition to law school for many first-year students. Lastly, I am a dedicated volunteer with the Canadian Cancer Society.
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling to new destinations and doing outdoor physical activity. Recent highlights include camping in the Sahara Desert, kayaking with whales, and visiting the Canadian Rockies.
