Molly Clark joined Brownlee LLP as a lawyer in the Municipal Insurance Litigation group after completing her articles with us in 2022.
She said she enjoys practicing law because it allows for individual and team-oriented work while requiring lawyers to develop a unique approach to how they advocate for clients.
Her passion for written and oral advocacy developed through her participation in law school moots. She competed in the national Wilson Moot competition and also volunteered as a moot mentor for first-year law students.
“I came to realize how much I enjoyed mooting and advocacy work during our mandatory first-year moot,” she recalled. In that moot, she and her partner qualified for the Dean’s Cup and placed second for the Appellants among all first-year students. “This piqued my interest and made me realize that advocacy was more of an art than a science, per se.”
Molly summered at our firm in 2019 and came back in 2021 to complete her articles, citing the mentorship she received as motivation for returning.
In light of that mentorship, she hopes to pay it forward and act in an informal mentorship role for future Brownlee students.
Prior to law school, Molly played lacrosse and ringette. While studying law she was a member of Swift Justice, the U of A Faculty of Law’s women’s hockey intramural team. She also volunteered with Student Legal Services’ Civil Law and Family Law divisions during her time at law school.
More recently, she enjoys exercising, watching the Food Network and reality TV, working on her golf game, and spending time with her family.
