Flynn, Alexandra

Ms. Alexandra Flynn began her legal career at a New York law firm specializing in corporate finance. Both before and after law school she was the recipient of numerous awards and honours, including the Concordia Medal, Osgoode Hall's Minkler Prize, and two New York Legal Aid Society awards for pro bono service. She has published a number of articles related to property and tax law. Following practice in a big firm, Alex has been in private practice as a First Nations lawyer, focusing on First Nation economic development, with a particular emphasis on corporate, contract and property law, and the drafting of land codes and other First Nation legislation. Prior to law school, Alex worked as a policy analyst, an Ombudsperson and was an intern at the United Nation headquarters in New York. Alex has volunteered extensively for urban-based policy and law organizations, and has most recently worked on strategies addressing homelessness. Alex's research focuses on land-based laws, both pertaining to First Nations and to traditionally marginalized communities within city boundaries. Outside of work, Alex enjoys travelling, snowboarding, running, enthusiastically attending film festivals, and spending time with her husband, Daniel, and small sons, Jonah and Simon.
