My first work experience with the Class Actions Lab started in the summer of 2017. During this time period, I went through class actions files kept at the Montreal Courthouse in order to evaluate take-up rates for class members. This research experience made me learn more about class actions’ benefits towards access to justice and led me to further questions on the challenges that still remain in this field.

I am presently working on a database on Quebec class actions in a joint project with the Law Commission of Ontario. This database will enable us to determine if class actions really has met its goals on access to justice, judicial economy and behaviour modification in the last twenty-five years.  This work experience is important to me, because the project is the largest of its kind in Canada and because its outcomes may have long-lasting impacts on class actions policies!
