Koskie Glavin Gordon is pleased to announce that Devyn Cousineau will be joining the firm on April 15, 2015, as an associate specializing in human rights and administrative law. Devyn has been a lawyer since 2009, after clerking at the BC Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada. She has spent the last six years working at a non-profit legal society, advancing the rights of workers, tenants and other marginalized people. She has appeared at all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada in a landmark case affirming every child’s right to an education. Her most recent work has focused on the rights of migrant workers, including temporary foreign workers and domestic workers.
Devyn sits on the BC Law Institute’s Employment Standards Act Reform Committee, and on the legal committees of West Coast LEAF and the Employment Standards Coalition. She has published and presented for the Continuing Legal Education’s Human Rights Conference on migrant workers’ rights, discrimination in tenancy, trans rights and disability management programs. In partnership with the labour movement, Devyn has travelled across the province to teach migrant workers about their rights in the workplace.
Koskie Glavin Gordon is thrilled to have such an experienced lawyer joining its firm.
