Steven is also a career advocate and avid mooter, having won the 2020 Osgoode Cup, a national undergraduate mooting championship featuring 120 teams from across Canada. Now at Osgoode, he has competed in several moots and regularly volunteers his time to coach high school and undergraduate mooting and mock trial students.

In his first year summer, Steven worked at a local full-service firm in the GTA where he specialized in family law mediation and litigation. Now at McCarthy Tétrault, Steven hopes to continue his passion for legal advocacy, public speaking, increasing access to justice and the use of alternative dispute resolution in the Ontario civil justice system.
