Overview

Alex McCutcheon joined the Fasken team as a student in May 2021 following her third year of law school at Université Laval. She will complete her professional training at the École du Barreau in winter 2022.

During her academic career, Alex distinguished herself through her involvement in the student community, particularly as a volunteer with the Legal Information Office (BIJ) and as a member of the Social Action Committee.

She has an avid interest in emerging technology and actively contributes to the democratization and popularization of blockchain technology for the general public. She is on the team of Pensez Blockchain, Quebec’s first website dedicated to promoting blockchain technology.

In addition, Alex has been involved in her community for many years, including work to support vulnerable populations. To share her passion for volunteering, she produced a documentary titled L’art d’aider in 2016. Since then, she has lectured on social involvement.

Along with her love for law and volunteer work, Alex is very interested in history and politics. In 2016, she took part in the Jeune démocrate : Par ici la démocratie ! student parliament competition.
