Brianna Walsh

 

VP-External 

Contact: bawalsh@ualberta.ca

Hi, I’m Brianna and I am your VP External. This means I am in charge of updates to the website as well as maintaining the events calendar. If you are ever running a fun event and want people to attend, let me know! Or if you don’t know who to talk to about something, ask me and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Beyond that, I am a 2L from Calgary who has 17 house plants. My fallback if law doesn’t work out is being a florist. Or maybe a starving artist. Understandably, my parents are really hoping law does work out. I used to play volleyball and row, but am now comfortably retired from both and enjoying all the rec sports law school has to offer, including really contributing to the hockey team by not knowing how to stop on skates and not really understanding the offside rule (yet).

Learn more about Zubair:

Hello everyone, my name is Zubair Hussain and I am the LSA’s Pint-Sized party planner, resident bat-man enthusiast and easily the sharpest dresser of the group. I originally hail from the great city of [REDACTED], but I find myself in Edmonton due to the stringent requirements of the witness protection program. Apparently no one will think of looking for me here? Either Way, when I’m not riding my motorcycle or collecting stamps, I spend most of my time holed up in my attic gathering evidence to building up the case against the people who are coming after me. Worry not fellow students, I will remain ever vigilant and ensure that justice is done.

My favourite food is 2% milk, my favourite flower is the Angel Wing Begonia and my favourite movie is The Sisterhood of The Travelling Pants.

I look forward to helping plan all your parties. This year’s gonna be LIT!

Hi everyone,

My name is Spencer and I am one of your VP Socials. I am in charge of facilitating events within the LSA. Whether that’s “First Friday Back”, the Carbolic Smoke Ball, or even the Gavel Christmas Party, I, along with the help of my friend Zubair, try to ensure everyone in the faculty has the opportunity to socialize in many capacities.

Contrary to popular opinion, I like cats more than dogs. I’m also deathly afraid of teenagers. I don’t hail from Alberta like many of you, so I know how it feels to make new friendships in law school. I also know how it is SO IMPORTANT. Its a hard road, but it harder when you try to do it alone. So come on out to as many events as you can.
 Also, I am super approachable so if you ever have a question or want to enjoy one of Steve’s classy caffeinated beverages, I am always around!

VP-Services

Contact: jeskiret@ualberta.ca

Hi, I’m Jeskiret (Jes) Bains and I’m your 2L VP Services! I work with my partner in crime, Katie, to maintain the Gavel, distribute lockers, create the Who’s Who, and attain sponsorship for our awesome events throughout the year. We also provide you weekly updates through the Weekly Blast!

I have an obscene amount of unnecessary knowledge about pop culture and celebrities and have been cut off from Coca Cola multiple times. My claim to fame was my brief stint on the small screen hanging with my main man Maury and having a popcorn fight with Will Ferrell, Keshia Chante, and Bow Wow. I am also known to be quite clumsy, having tore my shoulder and bonded retainer at El Hacko last year. I have an unhealthy obsession with FRIENDS (my own and the show).

Hey! My name is Tony and I’m one of the 1 L Representatives. I’m the people’s champion. That means when I’m not fighting for the community, I’m fighting for more of the community. I’ll also be organizing the Holiday Party, Faculty lunch, Family Movie Night and Blood Drive. Wow!

1L Representative 

Contact: cmyoo@ualberta.ca

Hi Guys!
I’m Courtney Yoo, your other 1L rep for the LSA. Yes, this means that I am constantly trying to get out of the towering shadow of the comedic legend that is Tony Basu. I knew he would come out with an amazingly hilarious blurb and trust me I tried to make a funny one too but they were all horrible (yes, more horrible than it is now).
I know what you’re thinking “Courtney’s is not as funny or as good looking as Tony Basu, what can she even do for me?” Great question! I am super eager to help out any fellow student with anything! Now keep in mind I am just a lowly 1L and don’t know much of anything, but I will work to be resourceful and help you any way I can. I am super excited to get to plan some events for you guys, and keep you in the know with all the happenings of the Faculty.
Please feel free to reach out and talk to me. If you want to remain anonymous I always have a good laugh at random hotmail email addresses that remind me of the 2000 era, so make one of those up and shoot me your concerns. Otherwise, call me beep me if you wanna reach me.
