Georgia Lloyd-Smith is part of West Coast Environmental Law’s Aboriginal and Natural Resources law team. She is excited to be working on the RELAW Project (Revitalizing Indigenous Law for Law, Air, and Water) and to be working to protect our precious coast. Georgia believes in the power of human connection to affect change, and sees law as an essential component of this work. She spends her thinking time in spaces where cultures, values, and ideas converge, in particular in the fields of Indigenous, environmental, health, and human rights law.
Georgia graduated from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University in 2014 and articled at the Environmental Law Centre at University of Victoria as well as at West Coast. While articling at West Coast, she worked with the Indigenous Law Research Unit researching Secwepemc laws related to environmental governance and decision-making. She also spent a summer in Fort McMurray, Alberta working as a legal intern with the Mikisew Cree First Nation in the heart of the tar sands.
Georgia is grateful for the opportunity to do this work with the inspiring West Coast team, on beautiful Coast Salish territory, and looks forward to every day’s teachings.
