Lina joined the Fasken team in the summer of 2019, after completing her third year of the joint B.C.L./LL.B program at McGill University. Lina is especially interested in the world of advanced technologies and was president of the McGill Intellectual Property Club. She worked at an intellectual property firm before joining Fasken.

She is a very involved student and served as vice president of Clubs and Student Services of the McGill Law Students’ Association for two consecutive years.

In addition to her law studies, Lina participates in several organizations, including the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie. As such, in 2017 she represented Canada at the Parlement francophone des jeunes in Luxemburg, and in 2018 at the Conférence internationale des jeunes Francophones in Geneva. She also promotes diversity and inclusion and received the inaugural memorial award given by the McGill Centre culturel islamique de Québec in 2018.

Intrigued by the international intersection of law, Lina will spend five weeks in July 2019 as an intern with the Dubai International Financial Center in Dubai.
