“I chose Lawson Lundell because of the firm’s strong and established environmental law practice and its commitment to fostering the growth of young lawyers.”

Samantha Andison is a summer student in the Vancouver office of Lawson Lundell. She is interested in exploring all areas of public law and is drawn to environmental litigation in particular.

Samantha is currently working towards her Juris Doctor at the University of Victoria Faculty of Law. Prior to attending law school, she completed her Master of Professional Communication at Ryerson University and worked as a graduate teaching assistant and a research assistant for multiple professors. Her Master’s Major Research Paper examined the ideological shift that occurred during the 2020 Green Party of Canada Leadership transition, and how this shift was represented in the political narratives promoted on the leaders’ Twitter accounts.
