Navaneeth Ravichandran is very excited to be returning to the firm as an articling student after an engaging and enjoyable summer student experience. He looks forward to continuing his legal education at McMillan alongside his colleagues.
Navaneeth recently graduated with a Juris Doctor from the University of Victoria Faculty of Law (UVic), where he participated in multiple extracurricular activities. He was involved as an executive with several student clubs including the Business Law Association, Intellectual Property and Technology Law Club and the UVic Chapter of Level Justice. He was a student member of the Faculty Admissions Committee, and later provided advice and opinions shaping the future direction of faculty admissions policy.
Navaneeth gained practical experience applying legal principles outside the lecture hall by serving as a clinician with two legal clinics, the UVic Business Law Clinic and the Law Student’s Legal Advice Program run by the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia. He also received basic arbitration and mediation training through the Sport Law Connect Program run by the Sport Dispute Resolution Centre of Canada. Through this program, he provided legal support for a three-person arbitration panel overseeing a dispute within a provincial sporting organization, including helping to draft the final decision.
Prior to attending law school Navaneeth completed a Bachelor of Arts degree (with distinction) at the University of British Columbia, majoring in political science and minoring in law and society.
Outside of the office, Navaneeth enjoys cheering for several sports teams and plays fantasy sports. He enjoys being physically active and has played for the Faculty of Law’s intramural soccer and softball teams. Additionally, you can find him spending time with friends trying out new restaurants in Vancouver.
