Benjamin joined Fasken in 2018 while completing degrees in common and civil law at McGill University. He holds an Honours Bachelor of Social Sciences degree (magna cum laude) from the University of Ottawa. Before pursuing a legal education, he worked for a large investment fund and ran a small business.
Benjamin enjoys collaboration and intellectual challenges. While completing his law degree, he served as a judicial law clerk to administrative judge Mario Évangéliste at the Administrative Tribunal of Quebec, assisted with works by Professors Fabien Gélinas and Andrea Bjorklund of McGill’s Private Justice and the Rule of Law Research Group, and was the Editor-in-Chief of the McGill Journal of Dispute Resolution.
Before articling at Fasken, he will be clerking anew at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice. There, he hopes to improve pleading skills gained while teaching a legal advocacy course at McGill’s law faculty.
Benjamin’s other interests include athletics, music, and politics.
