Vivian Poole was a member of the 2021 summer student class at Cassels and will return as an Articling Student in 2022. Vivian is currently enrolled in the J.D./M.B.A. program at the University of Toronto Faulty of Law and the Joseph L. Rotman School of Management where she is an active member of the student community. During her first year of law school, Vivian volunteered with Downtown Legal Services, where she connected those unable to afford counsel with legal resources. Vivian serves as the co-founder and co-president of the Law Film Society and is a mentor in both the J.D. and J.D./M.B.A. mentorship programs. At Rotman, Vivian is a member of the Women in Management Association. During her previous summers, Vivian worked at a boutique private mortgage law firm in Toronto, where she assisted with signings, closings, and client-contact duties.
Prior to law school, Vivian graduated with distinction from Queen’s University with an Honours Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Classical History. At Queen’s, Vivian served as a Teaching Assistant within the Classics department and was an executive member of the CERES Graduate Journal. One of the highlights of Vivian’s undergraduate experience was participating in an archaeological excavation in Cerveteri, Italy under the supervision of Dr. Fabio Colivicchi, which resulted in the discovery of a 10th C BCE human skeleton.
In her spare time, Vivian enjoys cooking, hiking with her dogs, running, playing cards and (hopefully) travelling again soon!
