Daphnée Legault joined the Fasken team as a student in 2020, after completing her second year of law school in the Cooperative Program at the Université de Sherbrooke. She had previously completed her first two internships at Fasken.
During her university studies, Daphnée was involved in faculty life in various ways, including as a volunteer at the Centre d’entraide à l’étude en droit, where she provided general and specialized tutoring services and led study sessions. Daphnée was also a coach in the freshman coaching program, in which she mentored a student through her first year in the faculty. She was also named to the Faculty Dean’s List for her outstanding academic results.
Outside law school, Daphnée has been involved in her community for many years promoting body diversity. Following several years as a volunteer with Équilibre, a Québec organization promoting the prevention and reduction of problems related to weight and body image, she now volunteers with Arrimage Estrie. This involvement has included running information booths to raise youth awareness of the issue. She will continue to expand her dedication to this cause in the Research LLM program at the Université de Sherbrooke in winter 2022, where she will focus on weight discrimination in the context of labour law.
