About Our Students


Morgan McGinn

Morgan summered with Cavalluzzo LLP in 2021 and is thrilled to be back as an articling student. In growing her practice, Morgan remains dedicated to leveraging her access to the legal system to support movement work.

At McGill, Morgan worked as a research assistant for Professor Adelle Blackett at the Labour Law Research and Development Laboratory, on issues relating to transnational labour law, equity and racial justice, COVID-19 and temporary foreign work programs and universal basic income. She was also teaching assistant and a senior manager of a feminist law journal.

During law school she was involved with several legal clinics. She was a regular volunteer at the Immigrant Worker’s Centre, learning how individual issues can be mobilized into collective action. She also spent a summer working at the Native Friendship Centre legal clinic and co-founded a new legal clinic at Resilience Montreal.

She has long been part of intersectional climate justice and anticolonial grassroots movements, contributing in roles from organizer and strategist to participating in direct action. Morgan spent an immersive semester at a public-interest environmental law organization in Victoria, BC. where she supported a major Indigenous claim for Aboriginal Title relating to the Site C dam development. She recently co-authored a book chapter on climate change litigation in Canada and has written about integrating climate justice and labour law through a Just Transition model.  

Morgan recently graduated from the McGill Faculty of Law with both common and civil law degrees. She also holds an honours degree (bachelor of arts) and a post-graduate certificate (fine arts). She is fluent in both English and French. Newly living and working on lands governed by the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant in Tkaranto, Morgan is committed to becoming a better treaty partner in all areas of life and work.

Priyanka Sharma

Priyanka recently graduated with a JD from Osgoode Hall Law School and is currently working on lands governed by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant. Priyanka strongly believes that survivors of systemic violence are the experts of their own lives and leaders of social movements; accordingly, Priyanka is learning how to use the law to either help or get out of the way.  She was a summer student at Cavalluzzo in 2021 and is excited to be back at the firm for articling.

In their final year of law school, Priyanka competed in the Julius Alexander Isaac Moot melding legal doctrine with critical race theory and also conducted research on the application of United Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples to Canadian law. Priyanka also held several positions at Parkdale Community Legal Services, including as a Workers’ Rights caseworker, the summer caseworkers’ union steward, and member of the Board of Directors where they co-chaired the Anti-Discrimination and Personnel Committee of the clinic.  At Osgoode, Priyanka was often seen running down Gowlings Hall (or popping into Zoom meetings) from one student meeting to the next, including for: the Journal of Law and Social Policy, TheCourt.ca, Student Caucus, OUTLaws, and Osgoode Hall Law Union. Priyanka received several awards recognizing her contributions to the law school, including the Dean’s Gold Key Award, OWN Osler & Bennet Jones Women Supporting Women Award, Jean-Alexandre De Bousquet Award for the Advancement of Human Rights, and Cassels Brock & Blackwell Prize for Professionalism.

Before law school, Priyanka earned an MA in Criminology & Sociolegal Studies and a BA (Honours) with a specialist in Criminology and major in English from the University of Toronto. At UofT, Priyanka served as the president of their faculty students’ union, teaching assistant for a prison abolition course, and supported labour, anti-colonial, and anti-ableist politics on campus. Outside of work Priyanka sits on the collective Board of Directors at the Toronto Rape Crisis Centre, is a peer support volunteer with LGBT Youthline, and a legal observing coordinator with the Movement Defense Committee of the Law Union of Ontario. When not in the office, Priyanka can be found zooming down Toronto bike lanes, bouldering, geocaching, doodling, and fiddling around with their twin-lens reflex camera.

Gabrielle graduated with a Juris Doctor from Western University.

Gabrielle has since held numerous volunteer and employed positions promoting mental health, including providing educational presentations with Jack.Org and as a telephone crisis worker for an employee assistance program.

Gabrielle was also involved with the Charter Society, Social Committee, and was a staff editor for the Ipso Facto journal. Gabrielle’s extensive mooting experience includes participation as both a competitor and a student coach in the National Labour Arbitration Competition.
