Student Ambassadors

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.

"I was drawn to Western Law by the collegial and tight-knit atmosphere fostered here. However, my expectations about law were far exceeded thanks to the close friendships I was able to form with peers that will last far beyond law school, the supportive professors I had the pleasure to learn from, and the amazing level of guidance and help provided by upper-year peers. I was involved in numerous moots during my first year and now work for a small law firm in Oakville. I strongly encourage you to seek out and explore the vast array of opportunities provided at Western for your personal development as a future legal professional." (rmoldov@uwo.ca

"On the first day of school, I was so nervous I accidentally left my phone at home! Even though I studied at Western for my undergrad, entering law school is a daunting experience for everyone. I was fortunate enough to participate in moots, the Business Law Society, and Pro Bono Students Canada.  I also completed the McCarthy CIBC summer placement through the Western Law Internship Program, which was an amazing experience! The Western Law community is incredibly supportive, which means you can reach out to students, faculty, and alumni!  The best advice I can give is to explore in your 1L year and seek support when you need it!"

"I chose Western Law because of its collegial environment, business law advantage, and extracurricular opportunities. Upon visiting Western on Welcome Day, I knew this was the school for me, and my impression was rightfully confirmed throughout 1L.  My expectations were surpassed as I built relationships with professors, friendships with peers, and connections with upper-year students, all of whom helped me make the best out of my 1L experience. Further, my involvement in many internal moots and as a 1L Caseworker on the Western Business Law Clinic were amazing experiences that supplemented what I was learning in the classroom by putting it into real-life practice. I couldn’t be happier with my decision!" (djamshid@uwo.ca)

"I couldn't be happier with my decision to attend Western Law.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out how readily available everyone is to offer support. With the help of faculty, staff and students, I was able to push myself to new limits.  In my first year, I worked with the Western Business Law Clinic, volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada, and was elected to be the 1L (and now 2L) representative for my class.  I am now working my dream job in Toronto.  I'm beyond thankful for the opportunities Western Law has provided and the connections and friends I've been able to make."

"I chose Western Law because of its reputation for fostering a sense of community among students. Since arriving, I have been continuously reminded that I made the right decision. So much support is available for incoming students, from upper-year mentors, faculty, and staff. Most important, I gained amazing friends through Western’s Small Group program. In addition to the inviting environment, I have been able to explore my interest in advocacy by participating in moot competitions and working as a Team Leader at Community Legal Services. I feel very lucky to have had such rewarding experiences so far.  Western Law is the perfect fit for me." ()

  

David Yun, Class of 2022David Yun

“Before entering law school, I envisioned I would have my head in the books in the library 24/7. Although law school is certainly challenging, I have been able to enjoy Western Law for all it has to offer. I met some of my closest friends during Orientation Week. Those relationships eased my transition and helped me feel comfortable at Western Law. Since then, we’ve been through everything together. In 1L, I participated in various moots, was involved with clubs and committees, secured a summer internship at the Canadian Red Cross, and even hosted a legal podcast through Pro Bono Western! I truly believe that Western Law provides a unique opportunity for personal growth and development.” ()

 

Sophia Lewycky, Class of 2022Sophia Lewycky

“Starting law school felt very daunting. It was a major life decision and my first time moving away from home. Since arriving at Western Law, I've never looked back. Attending Western has made me more ambitious and pushed me to try things I thought would be intimidating. In first year, I participated in moots, volunteered with Pro Bono Students Canada, was a Staff Editor with the Western Journal of Legal Studies, and co-organized Wellness Week. In the summer I interned with the Ontario Bar Association through the Western Law Internship Program. Thanks to the supportive collegial atmosphere here, I have been encouraged to explore areas of law that interest me and develop my legal skills." ()

  

Matt De Summa, Class of 2022Matt De Summa

"As an ‘extroverted introvert’, I was amazed at how easy it was to make new friends at Western Law. My Small Group members were my built-in support system. When I had to miss classes due to a scheduled surgery, they came to my aid, sending words of encouragement, sharing notes, and helping me get back on track so my grades wouldn’t suffer. There is no doubt in my mind that I wouldn’t have been able to balance school work with extra-curriculars and competitions if it wasn’t for their support. Law school is competitive, but your bond with your classmates here goes beyond that. There is a real sense of camaraderie and collegiality at Western Law.” ()

 

Bailey McMaster, Class of 2022Bailey McMaster

"I can confidently say I made the right choice in coming to Western Law. The student community is always supportive, and I made great friends in my Small Group on the first day. Not only did I learn from amazing professors, but I found countless ways to learn about the legal profession outside the classroom too.  I’ve been involved with Community Legal Services, the Western Intellectual Property Association, the Western Health Law Association, and I’ve participated in advocacy competitions. Between the social atmosphere and professional opportunities, Western Law is truly a great place for starting and advancing your legal career."  ()
