Somaya Amiri

Hello everyone!


Je m'appelle Somaya Amiri et j'ai le plaisir de me présenter en tant que coprésidente du MBLA. As an incoming 3L, I couldn't be more excited to take on this role and support our student body in navigating a career in bus iness law.  


I hold an Honours B.A. in Political Science with a minor in French from McGill University. Après avoir obtenu mon diplôme, j'ai travaillé pour le Parlement canadien en tant que personnel politique. En 2022, j'ai effectué un stage auprès du Refugee Law Project en Ouganda, and currently, I am a legal intern for the Canadian National Railway.


Avec Théa et le reste de notre équipe dévouée, nous sommes impatients de vous accompagner dans votre parcours en droit des affaires. Whether you seek internship opportunities or want to expand your knowledge of business law, we are here to assist.

Théadora Sauvé

Bonjour tout le monde,


I hold a Bachelor of Commerce in human resources & labour relations from McGill University and am the 2022 Valedictorian due to my academic achievements and leadership skills. I am currently studying at McGill University Faculty of Law, supported by an entrance scholarship from Norton Rose Fulbright.


I am involved with the non-profit organization Million Peacemakers, serving as a board member and co-chair of their global youth initiative. I was recognized by Forbes as one of the Top 11 purposeful women leaders making a positive impact on the world for my efforts in building the youth team from scratch.


Cet été, j’ai fait un stage au bureau de la ministre de la Justice en Namibie où que j’ai eu l’opportunité d’apprendre beaucoup sur les relations internationales dans le domaine légal.


Avec Somaya et notre équipe, j’ai bien hâte de collaborer avec les multiples cabinets de droit des affaires que ce soit à Montréal, Toronto ou New York pour l’organisation d’événements de réseautage et autres.

Marc-Elder Piard

Hello everyone,


My name is Marc-Elder Piard. I am an incoming 2L and I am very excited to hold the position of VP Communication for  the upcoming year.


Avant de venir à McGill, j’ai obtenu un diplôme au cégep Bois-de-Boulogne en Histoire et civilisation. J’ai également eu d’autres expériences très formatrices comme stagiaire en recherche à l’institut de recherche sur l’immigration et sur les pratiques interculturelles et inclusives (IRIPII) ou journaliste communautaire.


La course aux stages peut être un évènement très stressant pour un étudiant en droit. Je me suis joint au MBLA pour aider à faciliter les échanges entre les cabients et les étudiants afin de rendre ce processus aussi agréable que possible tout en explorant mon propre intérêt pour le droit des affaires.
