Daphne graduated with a joint degree in civil law and common law from McGill University in 2019 and successfully passed the Québec bar exam the same year. During her time at McGill, she completed a semester abroad at Université Paris II-PanthéonAssas, where her courses focused on EU commercial and competition law.
At McGill, her participation to the Pierre-BasileMignault pleading competition gave her the opportunity to break down a construction contract case and sparked her interest in litigation. Daphne also demonstrated her dedication to client interests, while mentoring incoming volunteers during her time as a supervisor at the Legal Information Clinic at McGill.
Among other experiences, her role as President of the McGill’s chapter of Lawyers Without Borders Canada and as a mentor for incoming students were a highlight of her time at the Faculty. She also had the opportunity to develop her legal skills as well as broaden her understanding of the Québec Charter and work for underprivileged clients by interning at the Quebec Human and Youth Rights Commission (CDPDJ).
Daphne firmly believes in the individual power to create social and environmental change and in the importance to give back to the community, and she makes a point of offering her help to local organisations. In her spare time, she also likes to practice the piano, visit museums and Montreal’s hidden places.
She is fluent in English, French and Greek.
