Sean Blakeley


Sean is* a litigator to his core. From his first days in law school he knew that his place was in the courtroom. At Western Law he found the advocacy program thrilling and has argued in many moots, including the Bora Laskin Moot. He recognizes that in order to be effective in a courtroom setting, he needs to be a cut above§ other strong and capable advocates. He achieves this through a passionate and disciplined approach to the law. Sean has demonstrated that he has a particular advantage over the rest when it comes to working with complex legal issues. As a research assistant at Western, Sean worked on some of the most current and difficult issues in administrative law. It is challenging work such as this that gets him up every morning. .
