Paul Hildebrandt

Paul grew up in Swift Current, SK, a city literally tens of people have called “the Toronto of Southwest Saskatchewan”. He completed the accounting program at the University of Saskatchewan and spent several years working in accounting in Saskatoon prior to moving to Toronto for law school. If you ever happen to find yourself in the (unfortunate) position of having nothing better to do on a Saturday night than discussing tax policy, Paul is your go-to guy.

Sukhmani Virdi

Sukhmani completed both her undergraduate and graduate degrees at York University, in history and political science. Throughout law school, Sukhmani has been an active member of Downtown Legal Services and spent both of her law school summers at the clinic. She is also a commuter and will always provide a sympathetic ear for people wanting to complain about transit. When not running between Jackman and DLS, Sukhmani can be found ranting about sports somewhere in the atrium, trying to solicit people to join fantasy sports leagues, or on stage at the annual Law Follies show.
