He is proud to have competed at the Inter-Varsity Moot at The Honourable Society of the Inner Temple in London, England. He was also awarded lead speaker for the winning team of the Birmingham Law Society Legal Debating Competition.
Prior to joining Burns Fitzpatrick, Balpreet also obtained practical legal experience by completing an internship (mini-pupilage) with one of the largest barrister’s chambers in England, and by volunteering as a pro-bono legal clinician with the Law Students’ Legal Advice Program (LSLAP) at UBC.
