Abygail recently completed her second year in the Dual J.D. Program at the University of Windsor and the University of Detroit Mercy. She holds an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics with a Minor in Legal Studies from Wilfrid Laurier University. In law school, during her first year, Abygail was the 1L Dual Representative for BLSA Windsor and currently serves as the VP Communications.
To hone her communication skills, Abygail joined her local Toastmaster Club, where she was also the youngest executive at the time. From the experience gained, Abygail was a successful participant in the G. Mennen Williams and Canadian Moot Court Competitions, where she passed both with distinction. Now she serves as a Junior Member of the Moot Court Board of Advocates at Detroit Mercy Law.
Last summer, Abygail had the opportunity to work as a Research Assistant for the Anti-Black Racism Committee. Her main task was to review and revise the committee’s report card and create a draft online platform for UWindsor Black law students to submit their experiences and concerns about anti-Black racism.
Due to the pandemic, Abygail has gained an interest in Health Law with a focus on medical malpractice and served as the 2L Dual Representative of the Windsor Health Law Club. Recently, Abygail wrote an opinion piece on behalf of the club discussing the disparities and discrimination faced by people of color in the health sector. Abygail is excited to join the firm where she will develop her skills and be an asset as she works with various clients to achieve their legal objectives.
