Through her academic and non-legal experiences, Sukhmani has developed a profound interest in workers’ rights, as well and the interplay between labour and identity. Prior to law school, Sukhmani studied history and political science at York University, where she used sports as a lens into this interplay. While a Graduate Assistant on strike, Sukhmani cemented her dedication to workers’ rights when she joined the picket lines.
This firsthand experience led Sukhmani to the University of Toronto, where she earned her JD. Most of her time in law school was spent at Downtown Legal Services, where she served as a division leader and caseworker in the Employment Law and Academic Appeals Division. Sukhmani also worked as a caseworker in the Record Suspensions Program, where she assisted individuals seeking to remove criminal convictions from their records and help lift a hurdle in their employment pursuits.
Sukhmani articled at CaleyWray prior to joining the firm as an associate.
When not at work, Sukhmani enjoys cursing her beloved fantasy football team, stand-up comedy and setting new personal bests at the gym (in a pre/post-pandemic world).
