Roxanne is an associate within the Litigation and Dispute Resolution law group. She joined the Fasken team in May 2018, after completing a bachelor’s degree in law together with a bachelor’s degree in public affairs and international relations at Université Laval.
Roxanne is passionate about international relations and studied Latin American business relationships at the Tecnológico de Monterrey, and European Union economy and politics at the Université Saint-Louis in Brussels. She also participated in the McGill Model United Nations Assembly (McMUN), where she addressed the financial and migratory crisis in Europe.
While a university student, Roxanne was involved with the Clinique de droit international pénal et humanitaire, where she contributed to producing a United Nations report on human rights violations in the Central African Republic. This work earned her a Barreau de Québec scholarship for high achievement in the clinic course.
Roxanne also volunteered in a Pro Bono Students Canada project involving a centre for women offenders. Her role was to inform individuals in plain language about the laws related to social assistance and deliver a workshop on the subject. In February 2018, Roxanne represented Université Laval during the Gale Cup Moot, Canada’s premier bilingual mooting competition in Canada, held in Toronto.
While a student, Roxanne worked as a research assistant in the field of dispute prevention and resolution, with a focus on collaborative law. She also clerked at the Court of Appeal of Québec under the direction of the Honourable Simon Ruel.
In addition to the law, Roxanne loves reading, travelling and cooking.
