Portrait of Matthew Walwyn

Matthew is currently a second-year student at the University of Toronto, Faculty of Law, with a particular interest in tax law and commercial litigation. Having completed an undergraduate degree in English and Philosophy at the University of Ottawa, he is eager to apply his writing and deep analytic skills to the practice of law.

Before coming to law school, Matthew summered at a financial management company, where he held the role of Intranet Content Librarian and Communications and Events Coordinator. As the Intranet Content Librarian, he helped manage the company’s internal website, enhancing its usability through metric analysis as well as regular maintenance. As the Communications and Events Coordinator, he helped spearhead a new, streamlined search tool database specifically for financial advisors in order to help them deliver a better experience to their clients.

At law school, Matthew was a student representative in the Student Law Society, where he helped organize and create a variety of student events. In this role, he also attended weekly meetings to discuss new initiatives, as well as oversee the funding of student groups. Further, he served as both an official and unofficial student mentor for incoming law students, helping with their academic and non-academic needs. He was also a member of the Supreme Chords, a vocal group that performed at law school events as well as other local acapella events.

In his spare time, Matthew enjoys playing the guitar and the piano. He can also be found practicing new languages, helping out in the community, or being helplessly lost in a book.
