Robert Powell completed a Bachelor of Arts degree in Anthropology at the University of Northern British Columbia and received his Juris Doctor from the University of Victoria in 2019.  Robert joined Swadden & Company in May, 2019, as an articled student.  He will be taking the Professional Legal Training Course until August.

During his time at the University of Victoria, Robert was privileged to act as counsel for multiple criminal and civil files at the Law Centre.  He also worked in a policy development role with the BC government and completed a major research paper on the new minor-injury legislation introduced by ICBC.  After completing his articles, Robert hopes to develop his practice in litigation.

In his spare time, Robert can be found hosting (or playing) trivia competitions, re-acquainting himself with Vancouver after almost a decade away, and biking the seawall while listening to obscure podcasts.
