Tiffany Sillanpää B.A., M.A., LL.B
I am a recent LL.B graduate interested in corporate law and specifically the legal development and challenges around Technology, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Intellectual Property (IP). Originally born and raised in Canadian, I moved to the United Kingdom in 2016 where I've been working in corporate risk and studying at The City Law School (City, University of London). Currently, I'm in the process of qualifying as a Lawyer in Ontario (with other jurisdictions in mind). In my spare time, I conduct research on IP and trade Law with City faculty and volunteer at “Start-Ed”—a commercial legal clinic focused on helping start-ups and small businesses navigate legal issues. I'm also an avid photographer and traveler who loves capturing the beauties of London, Europe, and beyond.
In addition to blogging for NCA Tutor, I also manage my own blog called “The Transition”. My writing aims to provide helpful information about the Canadian qualification process to UK Law Students wishing to qualify in Canada and Canadians considering legal studies in the UK. Studying and working abroad are phenomenal ways to broaden your perspectives and grow both personally and professionally. I hope my posts help you make informed and strategic decisions regarding the next steps in your legal career.
