Meet Brynn Leger – our articling student

October 11th, 2018 by Iler Campbell

By now, many of our clients will have had the opportunity to work with our articling student, Brynn Leger. Brynn started with us in July and her articling term runs until May next year. Regular readers of our blog will also recognize her name; she’s authored two of our recent articles.

Before becoming our articling student Brynn worked for a client of ours. While in university, Brynn was coordinator and president of a student owned and operated not-for-profit cooperative which used the services of Iler Campbell LLP to establish their constitution and by-laws. She was also involved in the wider co-operative community through partnerships and participation in the GTA Co-op Conference and Roundtables.

While in law school, at Osgood Hall, she completed a placement as a caseworker at Parkdale Community Legal Services in their Worker’s Rights Division. She gained valuable experience there carrying cases to completion regarding employment standards and human rights violations. As you might guess, given her co op experience she has an interest in organizational law and the ways in which businesses can be creatively owned and operated. She also has a particular interest in labour and employment law.

Outside of her legal pursuits, Brynn works Saturday mornings at her neighborhood farmer’s market for a social enterprise called Chocosol Traders, which draws on Indigenous governance models and fosters horizontal trade relationships with its growing partners, to create stone ground dark chocolate. She also sings, writes songs and plays guitar in her spare time.
