Seeking an Articling Placement

Printer-friendly version


Having recently graduated from the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom, I am in the process of writing my NCA's to gain my Canadian equivalences and practice law in Canada. I was born and raised in Nova Scotia, and also have a previous career as a teacher in the Halifax region. As a mature student, I entered into the study of law as it is a passion of mine.

My interests in law are never ending, however, I am very passionate regarding area of human rights. I also have a passion for insolvency law as I do view it as a means to help people move forward in struggles they face. Two diverse areas,  however I believe it speaks to my drive to have a vast amount of knowledge in different areas.

Personally, I am an advocate for those who suffer with mental illness. Although it is becoming less of a taboo, there is much work to be done. I am also an advocate for children’s rights, animal rights and I volunteer regularly for the Canadian Cancer Society.

If there is an opportunity available and we could begin a conversation, I can be contacted via email at:

I live within the Halifax Regional Municipality.

Kind Regards,

Leah Knowles
