Meet Zachary!

Hello! My name is Zachary Sippel and I am in 3B Arts & Business Co-op majoring in Legal Studies and minoring in Human Sciences through St.Jerome’s University. I am currently studying diligently for the February 2017 LSAT with the hopes of applying for law school in the 2017 cycle. My aspirations are to specialize in Technology & Copyright Law at Windsor or Western University. I hope that my experience in co-op working for several of Canada’s largest financial institutions coupled with my passion for technology and the law will bring interesting insights to all interested students.
