Portrait of Kennedy MacDonald

Kennedy graduated with a Juris Doctor from the University of Ottawa in 2018.  Throughout her time at the University of Ottawa, Kennedy focused on developing advocacy skills by participating in oral advocacy courses and moots.  Specifically, Kennedy completed an advanced disability litigation practicum, trial advocacy, appellate advocacy, a tribunal internship placement at the City of Ottawa, and a trade negotiation class.

Prior to attending law school, and during the summer after her first year, Kennedy worked for the Skyline Group of Companies at their head office in Guelph.  Beginning in the business operations department, Kennedy gained experience as an administrator for residential tenants before transitioning into the legal department to assist with corporate tasks.

In 2014, Kennedy earned her Bachelor of Arts from the University of Guelph.  As an undergraduate student, Kennedy’s experience working and volunteering at Student Accessibility Services developed into a true passion for institutional service provision, particularly related to equity seeking groups.  To pursue her interest during law school, Kennedy selected human rights classes, volunteered with the Women’s Legal Mentorship Program, and acted as the English Common Law Student Representative on the Faculty of Law’s Equity Committee during the 2017-2018 academic year.
