Bhavana Nagra is excited to be returning to McMillan as an articling student. She looks forward to the opportunity to further develop her skills and knowledge alongside lawyers at the firm.

Bhavana recently completed her JD program at the Peter A. Allard School of Law (Allard) at the University of British Columbia. In her final year of law school, Bhavana was the Director of Communications of the Women’s Caucus, an on-campus organization working to achieve equality for all members of the legal profession via events, workshops, and fundraisers. In this role, Bhavana worked closely with other executive members to create and coordinate all social media posts. She acted as a bridge between the organization and the Allard student body to ensure club events and initiatives were promoted. Bhavana also acted as the Vice President External of the South Asian Law Students’ Association, an organization dedicated to promoting equity, diversity, and inclusion at Allard. As an executive member, Bhavana assisted the club in holding multiple cultural events, hosting a panel with lawyers from varied practice areas discussing legal practice as a South Asian lawyer, and establishing networks between Allard students and South Asian legal professionals. During her second year of law school, Bhavana volunteered with the BC Society of Transition Houses through a placement with Pro Bono Students Canada.

Before attending law school, Bhavana completed a Bachelor of Arts at Simon Fraser University, with a major in Political Science and a minor in Psychology. During her undergraduate degree, Bhavana gained valuable customer service skills through the retail industry, working for several years before acceding to a management position.

During her free time, you will find Bhavana catching the sunset at the beach, lifting weights at the gym, or spending time with family, friends, and her dog Benny. She also enjoys exploring the city’s new restaurants and coffee shops.
