Alin Mayer

While in law school Alin was heavily involved with Student Legal Assistance (SLA), a student run organization that offers legal services to low income individuals. She ran her first criminal trial as a member of the SLA summer team in her first year of law school. During her two and a half years volunteering with SLA, including her position as Trial Coordinator on the 2014 SLA Executive Team, she continued to focus chiefly on criminal files, successfully conducting numerous trials.

Alin was awarded the Borden Ladner Gervais Trial Advocacy Position in summer of 2014, which allowed her to oversee a majority of SLA files set for trial and focus on research, primarily in criminal law matters. In her final semester of law school, Alin was chosen as one of five Provincial Court Clerkship Students. She shadowed Judges from Criminal, Youth Criminal, Civil and Family Provincial Court, for whom she conducted research and drafted memorandums. The Clerkship Program allowed her to gain first hand experience into the judicial structures of the Provincial Courts.

Alin is bilingual, and remain connected to her Iranian-Armenian heritage.
