Farris Summer Articling Student Featured in the Globe & Mail

Mia Taghizadeh is a summer articling student at Farris who began volunteering at the West Coast Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF) nearly five years ago, and continues to balance her time between school, work and community involvement.

In the article, Mia is interviewed about her experience as a West Coast LEAF Youth Facilitator, where she leads workshops about employment rights and youth employment issues.

“I enjoy contributing to public legal education programs because it allows me to utilise my legal knowledge in a way that helps youth become aware of their rights”.
Mia enjoys her work at Farris because it offers her a chance to learn from lawyers who are passionate about what they are doing, have a vast knowledge base to draw from, and value community involvement such as her work with West Coast LEAF. “I am excited to be learning how to help people with legal questions with practical, actionable assistance,” states Mia. “Thankfully, at Farris, accommodating my interest in public legal education is not a problem.”
