Jewitt McLuckie is proud to announce that University of Ottawa Law Student Samarah Arafat will be joining us for the 2021-2022 articling term.

Samarah’s background includes research into minimum wage policy in the Asian garment industry, volunteering with Women at the CentrE, where she focused on the intersection between the criminal justice system and women’s rights, as well as advocacy as a caseworker at the University of Ottawa Legal Clinic. Samarah also placed as a semi-finalist in the Nelligan O’Brien Payne Moot Competition.

We hope you’ll join us in warmly welcoming Samarah to Jewitt McLuckie!
