Colin Bryden is a summer student in the Calgary office of Lawson Lundell. He is interested in a wide range of practice areas but particularly wants to leverage his background in the geosciences in fields such as energy, environmental and regulatory law.

Colin is currently working towards his Juris Doctor at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law. Prior to attending law school, he completed a Master’s Degree in Earth Sciences at Dalhousie University, where part of his project involved mapping and collecting geological samples in western Norway. Since graduating he has worked with his thesis supervisor and co-authors from the University of Alberta to publish his research findings in the peer-reviewed scientific journal Lithos. Between finishing his education in geology and starting his law degree, Colin has also had a range of work experiences, including an internship at the Alberta Washington Office at the Canadian Embassy in Washington D.C. and a stint working in the fire assay lab at the Hope Bay gold mine in Nunavut.
