Law School

Dalhousie University

Nicholas recently completed the second year of his J.D. at Dalhousie University. Last summer, Nicholas worked as a Research Assistant for Professor Legorburu where he examined legal and geopolitical risks surrounding subsea internet cables and compared emerging Canadian privacy and cyber legislation with the GDPR. He also assisted with the research, design, and delivery of an upper-year intensive course on cyber law and policy in the fall semester. Throughout the year, Nicholas volunteers as a student advocate with the Dalhousie Student Advocacy Service where he represents university students in academic integrity hearings, and is also an academic peer mentor for 1L students.

Before law school, Nicholas completed his Bachelor of Science (Honours) and Master of Public Administration at Queen’s University. During the first year of the pandemic, Nicholas worked with Ontario's Treasury Board Secretariat as a Strategic Analyst for the Municipal Affairs and Housing portfolio. During his time, he contributed to two provincial Budget cycles and briefed senior officials and Cabinet members on a number of large pandemic-related financial requests. 

Throughout his undergraduate degree, Nicholas held various summer research and policy positions at Ontario’s Ministry of Health, Toronto General Hospital, and the Rural Ontario Medical Program. He also volunteered with an international, undergraduate-led, multidisciplinary research journal for several years and organized an open-water swim to fundraise money for Collingwood’s hospital.  
 
Outside of work and his studies, Nicholas enjoys reading a range of non-fiction books as well as playing and watching basketball and tennis. His growing interest in finance has also motivated him to complete the Canadian Securities Course.
