Practice Areas

Amy has made several contributions to legal research throughout her legal studies. During her first year at law school, the Future of Law Lab published a paper she wrote on the Canadian courts’ approach to addressing climate change in judicial decisions and how the advancement of climate change will affect the practice of law broadly. Amy was also recognized as a Theodore “Ted” Rachlin Fellow and McMillan LLP Scholar and pursued research into child welfare law with Justice for Children and Youth. She published an article for the Ontario Bar Association on navigating shared parenting arrangements and managing financial considerations to uphold the best interests of the child.

During her second year of law school, Amy wrote a paper on the significant role that intellectual property law plays in the fulfillment of international environmental agreements and the efficacy of patents in promoting the conservation of biodiversity on an international scale. Amy also contributed to the Child Welfare Toolkit, a joint initiative between the David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights and the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work at the University of Toronto, which outlines case law and social science literature relevant to key areas of child welfare law.

Prior to law school, Amy completed her Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering with a Minor in Law at Toronto Metropolitan University.
