The Faculty of Law is delighted to welcome Brittany Williams, BCL/LLB’19, to its administrative team. She joins us for a one-year appointment as Acting Assistant Dean (admissions and recruitment), effective 7 December 2020.

Previously, Williams served as programs and strategy manager for the Girls Action Foundation. During her law studies, she served as executive director of the Legal Information Clinic at McGill, held a mandate on the executive of the Law Students’ Association, and was an active contributor to the Black Law Students’ Association and the Women of Colour Collective. Williams was among the first students admitted to the Faculty of Law after taking part in our LEX high-school outreach program.

Williams will oversee the admissions process and student recruitment activities for the BCL/JD double-degree program, as well as manage the Admissions Office. She will work closely with the Dean and the Faculty’s Equity Committee in advancing priorities relating to equity and inclusion, including the recruitment of Black and Indigenous candidates.

“It’s terrific to welcome Brittany Williams back to the Faculty of Law,” said Dean Robert Leckey. “In concert with our Admissions Committee, she’ll play a critical role in shaping the future of our student body.”

Please join us in welcoming our newest colleague!
