Tegan O'Brien

Tegan O’Brien is a 2017-2018 articling student class at Cassels Brock. She first joined the firm as a summer student in 2016.

Tegan graduated from the J.D. program at the University of Toronto. During her time in law school Tegan was actively involved in the community. She volunteered with Law In Action Within Schools, an organization which helps high school students develop professional skills, and  as a caseworker at Advocates for Injured Workers, assisting clients with claims and appeals with the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board.

Tegan also volunteered as a Division Leader and worked as a summer caseworker at Downtown Legal Services, the University of Toronto’s student legal clinic. As a case worker in the University Affairs Division she represented students accused of academic dishonesty, and assisted students with academic appeals.  In this role, she was able to appear as first chair before administrative tribunals, and was responsible for drafting submissions and negotiating settlements.   

Prior to law school Tegan graduated with an Honours Bachelor of Arts and Science (with Distinction) from McMaster University. Her interdisciplinary education exposed her to a variety of academic interests including economics, public policy and chemistry. Tegan spent many years as both a camper and a staff member at summer camp, and maintains a passion for many camp activities ranging from horseback riding to the dramatic arts.
