Karin Mistlberger is thrilled to return to McMillan as an articling student after a rewarding experience summering with the firm. She is very excited to continue to develop her professional and legal skills with the guidance of lawyers at the firm.
Karin recently graduated from the Juris Doctor program at the University of Victoria (UVic). During her first year of law school, Karin worked with Access Pro Bono as a student volunteer to help deliver legal services to marginalized populations. In the summer after her first year at law school, Karin worked as a Supply Contracts Facilitator for UVic Purchasing Services. In this position, she gained valuable experience reviewing supply contracts and corresponding with clients. In her third year at law school, Karin was nominated for the UVic Faculty of Law’s Maclean Scholarship in Legal History and Criminal Law for a paper she wrote in her Advanced Legal Research and Writing course.
Prior to law school, Karin received a Bachelor of Arts from Simon Fraser University (SFU) with a major in Psychology. While at SFU, Karin completed a semester abroad at the University of Sussex in England. She graduated first class with distinction.
Throughout her undergraduate degree, Karin worked as a Lifeguard for the Township of Langley and the City of Surrey. She enjoyed teaching swimming lessons and ensuring patrons had fun and stayed safe at the pool.
Karin has several hobbies that she pursues in her spare time. She enjoys long-distance running and has completed two half marathons. She owns a horse named Mara, and the two of them have competed in horseback races across British Columbia through the Endurance Riders Association of BC (ERABC). Outside of sports, Karin is a passionate cook and baker. Cookies are her favourite thing to bake, but she has also experimented with croissants and rugelach.
