Jenna Jeffrey (she/her/hers) is a German-Metis JD student at the University of Manitoba’s Robson Hall Faculty of Law. With an undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies, also from the University of Manitoba, and experience working in corporate charitable giving, Jenna applied to law school with the hope of one day working in environmental law on the West Coast.
At school, Jenna is the President of the Environmental Law Group and has contributed to a silica sand research project and accessible materials for the Public Interest Law Centre’s Navigating the Law webinar series. This past year, Jenna also volunteered with the Winnipeg Food Council through Pro Bono Students Canada and serves as a member of the Winnipeg Humane Society’s Animal Compassion Team.
Jenna has dreamed of working at West Coast Environmental Law since her first year of law school. She has come to WCEL with an interest in Indigenous law revitalization, particularly in natural resource management. With a soft spot for whales, bears, and wolves, Jenna also hopes to gain some experience working on habitat protection during her summer placement.
In her free time, Jenna enjoys going for walks with her two dogs, reading, taking a few too many breaks in barre classes, and traveling to Central and Northern Europe to watch the World Junior Hockey Championship.
