Julia Gauze

Summer Student

I have just completed my second year at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, and I hold a bachelor of Arts in English Literature from McGill University.

Law school has given me the opportunity to participate in a number of extra-curricular activities. In my first year, I worked with an Asper Centre working group on carding and immigrant detention centres. Next year, I will be co-president of the Jewish Law Students’ Association. I have worked on two major pieces of constitutional litigation: At the Federal Court of Appeal, I worked on Canadian Council for Refugees v Canada, and at the Supreme Court of Canada worked on Toronto (City) v Ontario (Attorney General). Over the past year, I have been working in the refugee and immigration division of Downtown Legal Services. There, I gained valuable experience managing my clients’ files, drafting applications and communicating with various immigration bodies.

My interest in working in labour and employment law emerged when I had the opportunity to speak with a number of lawyers working in that field. I was drawn to this exciting area of law that touches on every aspect of the employer-employee relationship. I want to be able to help employers with every issue that arises in the workplace, both big and small. I look forward to the chance to build long-lasting relationships with clients, working with them to protect themselves and their businesses from workplace conflicts.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading Jane Austen novels, doing crosswords, and spending time with my friends and family.
