Holly McEwan


Holly joined Nugent Law Office in 2019 as an articling student after graduating from the University Of Alberta Faculty Of Law. In 2019 she was awarded the Clinton J Ford Shield as winner of a constitutional law moot. Before law school, Holly obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from the University of Alberta. During her undergraduate degree, she presented several pieces of writing at academic conferences and Edmonton’s Litfest.

Holly has worked as an administrative assistant for the United Steelworkers of America, a barista, and as a salesperson selling books, antiques, and fireworks.  During law school, she waited tables, worked as a communications and marketing intern for Flying Canoë Volant, and spent a happy summer at the Legal Education Society of Alberta. She also volunteered with the Civil Division of Student Legal Services, and as an assistant to Duty Counsel through the Elizabeth Fry Society.

Holly is from Edmonton and loves this city. She is immensely grateful for the opportunity to practice union-side labour law. Outside of work, Holly enjoys spending time with her partner, eating at new restaurants, and listening to hip hop.
