James Splane


I was born in 1992 in St. John, New Brunswick, and moved to Kapuskasing, in Northern Ontario, in 1996, and then to Timmins, in Northern Ontario, in 2001. In 2010, I graduated from Timmins High & Vocational School, having taken the French Immersion Program, and began my studies at the University of Ottawa. In 2014, I graduated from the University of Ottawa with a Bachelor of Social Sciences, Major in Political Science and Minor in Canadian Studies, French Immersion. I graduated from Queen’s University with a Juris Doctor in June of 2017, and in August of 2017 I began my one-year employment as an Articling Student for the 2017-2018 term at Mendonca Law Office Professional Corporation, working mainly in Child Protection Law. I was called to the Bar as a member of the Law Society of Ontario on June 25th, 2018

In the long term, I am hoping to find work in a field in which I can help to advance the cause of social justice and promote the interests of the most vulnerable members of society. Legal areas such as Labour & Employment Law, Human Rights Law, Aboriginal Law and Environmental Law are of special interest to me. I am dedicated, hard-working and honest, and am prepared to give my best efforts to ensure that the rights and interests of my clients are protected and upheld. While I prefer to resolve issues peacefully, I have no hesitation fighting for the rights of my clients in court if it comes to that.
