Jennifer started with Sealy Cornish Coulthard in May 2008 as a summer law student. She is now an Associate with the firm after being admitted to the Bar in June, 2011.
Jennifer received the Alistair Fraser Scholarship for her second year marks and was on the Dean’s List for two years. At graduation, she received the R.A. Smith Prize in Advocacy. She received her Bachelor of Arts (Hons., 2007) from Queen’s University with a major in Classics and a minor in Art History. She is the past President of the Halifax/Dartmouth branch of the Queen’s University Alumni Association.
Jennifer has volunteered with the Family Law Information Centre through Pro Bono Students Canada. She also volunteers with the Parent Information Program at Family Division. She is on the organizing committee for the Canadian Bar Association NS’s Law Day activities and was a member of the committee for last three year’s events as well.
In addition, Ontario native Jennifer likes to explore the different museums and galleries that Halifax has to offer as well as traveling and reading.
I choose to work for a small firm where the efforts of every person makes a visible difference. Sealy Cornish Coulthard treats their lawyers and staff members as part of a family. I believe we extend the same approach to our clients so they know they have the entire firm working on their behalf.
