Ask an Ambassador!
Each year the Admissions and Recruitment Office selects students to serve as Western Law ambassadors. Ambassadors assist with events such as Orientation, our annual Welcome Day, recruiting receptions, and the phone campaign. They also give tours of the Faculty of Law and provide general information about their student experience. Below we feature some of our current ambassadors. They would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have about Western Law. Feel free to email them directly at the email addresses provided.
Gordon Chan, Class of 2019
“All my life I have performed best within a supportive and collaborative environment. Here at Western Law my professors and classmates have been instrumental in creating that type of atmosphere. I am confident I have formed friendships that will last long after I graduate. Further, because Western offers numerous extracurricular clubs, advocacy competitions, and legal clinics, I have been able to explore a diverse set of interests. Studying at Western Law has been everything I hoped for. I could not be happier with my decision to attend law school here.”
Sakshi Pachisia, Class of 2019
“Before starting law school, I was scared, nervous, and excited all at the same time! During my time at Western Law those feelings have stayed with me, but I’ve been able to add “comfortable” to that list. From the accomplished professors to the hard-working peers and from the caring administration to the encouraging barista in Chambers: every person in the Western Law community has pushed me to be a better version of myself. I have learned so much and I am truly glad I chose Western for my legal education.”
Umar Khan, Class of 2019
“I am happy to have found a home at Western Law. The supportive administration, knowledgeable faculty, and welcoming student body all contribute to making Western Law an inclusive space in which the pursuit of legal knowledge manifests as a shared activity. Beyond the incredible opportunities offered in refining legal skills, Western Law offers students the ability to continuously grow as concerned individuals through both club and committee involvement, and student-run initiatives focused on community service.”
Tea Prpa, Class of 2019
“Coming to law school was my first time moving away from home, but from the first day at Western Law you are introduced to a community that will always be by your side. I have felt supported and encouraged throughout the development of my legal career, both professionally and personally. There are countless resources and opportunities, from clinics to intramurals to clubs, and you will learn about law at the highest level both inside and outside of the classroom. I can confidently say that my Western Law family has become my home away from home.”
Haya Shehab, Class of 2018
"I chose Western Law for its commitment to its students. From being the first to offer a choice between Ethics and Corporate law in first year to the endless opportunities to get involved with extra-curricular clubs and legal clinics. Western Law’s first year small group program helped me succeed academically and allowed me to form life-long friendships. I could not have asked for a better law school experience.”
James Son, Class of 2018
"I chose Western Law for its class size and academic excellence. Since then, I have learned that there is so much more to the Western Law experience. I found a terrific support system and lasting friendships in my first-year small group. I gained invaluable practical experience through numerous advocacy competitions and clinical opportunities. Western Law is a truly collegial and active community consisting of students, faculty and staff where you will find a sense of belonging and unreserved support to pursue your passion."
Charlotte Knutson, Class of 2018
“Since I’m from Vancouver, people often ask why I left beautiful British Columbia to come to Western Law. The reasons that I came here were mainly the strong business law focus, the proximity to Toronto, and the small class size that I found encouraged collegiality among students. Needless to say, I was not disappointed once I got here. It is easy to develop strong relationships with your classmates and professors, as people here are always genuinely happy to help another Mustang in need.”
Jenna Zaleski, Class of 2018
“I chose Western Law because I wanted to receive a top quality legal education while also being part of a community. I was concerned that going to law school, I'd be thrown into an overly competitive environment. But Western Law couldn't have been more collegial. The professors, staff, and students are supportive, friendly, and always willing to help out. I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend Western Law for the opportunities it has provided to me and the life-long friendships I've formed.”
Ava Williams, Class of 2018
"I chose Western Law not only for its strong academic reputation, but also for its supportive and collegial environment. It was important to me to feel like I belonged to a community. There is something for everyone here - whether it's academic endeavours, mooting programs, intramural sports or volunteering at one of our many clinics. I know my experience here will continue to benefit me long after I graduate. I am proud to be a member of this law school, and I can't imagine completing my degree anywhere else."
