Rhythm Jethi is joining McMillan as a summer law student. She looks forward to acquiring hands-on learning opportunities to hone her legal and professional skills while also benefiting from the firm’s expertise and collaborative work environment. She recently completed her second year of law school at Thompson Rivers University (TRU). At TRU, she served as Vice-President of the Criminal Law Club, as an executive for the Human Rights Club, and now runs a podcast for the Business Law Society which focuses on emerging legal trends and seeks insight from practicing lawyers and legal experts. During her first year of law school, she was honoured to receive the “Next 10 Years” scholarship by the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers of British Columbia (FACL BC) for her dedication to the Asian Canadian legal community. She now volunteers with FACL BC’s Advocacy Committee which advocates for equality in the legal profession and raises awareness to legal issues within the community.

Prior to law school, she attended UBC and received her Bachelor of Arts majoring in Political Science and minoring in Law and Society, with high distinction. While studying at UBC, she worked closely with a federal political party, assisting with campaign efforts during election year. Her previous experiences, which consist of working at a boutique law firm and volunteering with the University of British Columbia’s (UBC) Law Students’ Legal Advice Program, allowed her to gain valuable knowledge and skills, which she is excited to further develop at McMillan.

In her free time, she enjoys partaking in various air activities such as skydiving, paragliding, and parasailing. However, on most days, she looks forward to trying new restaurants, making charcuterie boxes, binge-watching tv shows, and spending quality time with friends and family.
