Alexis is a 2L at Robson Hall who is looking forward to this new year as a time to implement change. Alexis had no connections to the legal field when she started law school and has taken every opportunity and used every resource that Robson Hall provides for networking and professional development. This puts her in the best position possible to work towards enhancing these resources and providing more opportunities for law students to connect with firms and lawyers.
The main aspects of Alexis’ platform for Vice President External are as follows:
Networking – have more foundational networking practice, opportunities within and beyond the Robson Hall community and exposure to firms outside of the big 5
Resources – create a Robson Hall Interview Guide and host consistent LinkedIn workshops
Structure – ensure that Mock Interview Night coincides with 2L summer and articling application periods
Students – listen and advocate for Robson Hall students while acknowledging and celebrating the work of the student body
Alexis came to Robson Hall after a receiving a biology degree from the University of Manitoba. During a break between undergrad and starting at Robson, Alexis travelled and worked full time in the restaurant industry. She held both server and management positions and has continued to work throughout law school.
She is currently the Student Assistant at the Dean’s Office at Robson Hall, working with Acting Dean David Asper on faculty and student initiatives, family business law research and assisting with the L.Kerry Vickar Business Law Clinic while being in school full time. In her down time, you can find her reading a new book, doing yoga, listening to a podcast, or hanging out with friends (these days via zoom).
