Quotes
My year as a Fox Scholar was wonderful. I did meaningful work on challenging and high-stakes disputes - everything from a negligently constructed powerplant to an (allegedly!) forged painting "by" a Dutch master. The barristers I worked with were at the top of their profession, and were always happy to share their extensive knowledge about advocacy over a pint, lunch, or one of our many walks to and from the courthouse. Living at Goodenough College was also excellent. I did not know anyone in London before moving, but Goodenough provided a built-in network made up of friendly, interesting people from all over the world, many of whom I am still close with today.

Quotes
The work I did in Toronto was the same as the other articling students there. I was able to get involved in mediations, helping draft skeleton arguments, research notes, client communication, attend an employment tribunal, amongst other work. I challenged myself and got so much out of my experience. I developed a great relationship with my colleagues, some of whom I remain in touch with.
