Ashley was called to the Bar in June 2020. He completed his Honours BA in Political Science and Drama Studies at Glendon College, while also obtaining a Certificate in Law and Social Thought. Ashley then completed his Juris Doctor at the University of Ottawa, taking a particular interest in oral advocacy, dispute resolution, employment & labour law, and Indigenous law. After passing the licensing exams, he entered Ryerson’s Law Practice Program and worked at a Trademark boutique firm in Ottawa.
Ashley has always been involved beyond work and academics. At Glendon, he spent two years as the Arts & Entertainment Section Editor of Pro Tem Newspaper and the Instrumental Director, and then the General Manager, of the Glendon Musical Ensemble. In law school, he participated in both the Nelligan O’Brien Payne First Year Moot (2016) and Weiler Mediation Competition (2018). He performed in uOttawa’s law school productions of Mamma Mia! (2019) and Legally Blonde: The Musical (2017), starring as Warner in the latter. He was also the Vice President of Finance for the Employment and Labour Law Student Society (2018-2019).
In the Law Practice Program, he was elected to the Law Practice Program Candidates’ Association Executive Team. In this role, Ashley ran the LPPCA Career Clinic, overseeing cover letter and résumé review and mock interviews for candidates searching for LPP work placements. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Ashley established the LPP’s first Summer Career Clinic to help even more candidates to secure placements under the pandemic’s economic uncertainty. The Summer Clinic helped almost 100 candidates.
Outside of work, Ashley is very dedicated to healthy eating and exercise. He also enjoys good movies and TV shows and is always happy for recommendations. Even while in lockdown, Ashley continued to do what he could to connect with other professionals and build his network.
