Danielle Bailey-Heelan (she/her)


Danielle was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, where she completed her Bachelor of Arts in political science and English at the University of Alberta. While completing her undergraduate education, Danielle also earned a Certificate in Interdisciplinary Leadership at the Peter Lougheed Leadership College which provided her the opportunity to work in the Edmonton Provincial Courthouse with the Elizabeth Fry Society. Her experiences as a Court Worker affirmed Danielle's long-time interest in pursuing a legal career. In the future, Danielle hopes to pursue a career in litigation and will be articling at Stewart McKelvey’s Halifax office.


In her free time, Danielle enjoys playing sports, exercising, cooking and baking, and going for walks along the Halifax Harbour. ​ Danielle is looking forward to returning to the LSS after serving as a 1L Section Representative and as VP Student Life in 2L. As President, Danielle hopes to facilitate and contribute to a law school environment that is welcoming, inclusive, and uplifting for all students. Using a student-focused approach, she believes it is crucial that the programming of the LSS reflect all students' needs and hopes, and continues to build the community further. In her view, the best part of the Schulich School of Law is the collegial atmosphere, and the friendships she has made. For that reason, she wishes to do all she can to ensure future students have similar positive and memorable social experiences.

Claire Nicholson (she/her)

VP Executive

Claire, a native of Ontario, grew up in a small town just a few hours away from Toronto. She
earned her Honours Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Wilfrid Laurier University. During her undergrad, Claire worked part-time at a pharmacy while dedicating her free time to volunteering at the school's Career Development office, where she provided valuable feedback and advice on resumes and cover letters. In her 2L summer, Claire had the privilege of working as a research assistant for former Dean Camille Cameron, contributing to an article on the latest developments in climate change litigation in Canada. Her dedication and hard work have led her to secure an articling position at Canadian Blood Services, back in Ontario.

Though this is Claire's first year on the LSS, it is not her first involvement in meaningful projects. She actively participated in Pro Bono initiatives with Pro Bono Dalhousie, collaborating with the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia and the Halifax Workers' Action Centre. Moreover, Claire previously held the position of Lead Teaching Assistant for the undergraduate-level Introduction to Law course administered through the law school, an experience she cherishes and hopes to return to. Now, as she takes on the role of VP Executive this year, Claire is excited about the opportunity to organize the internal structure and operations of the Society, ensuring effective governance and enhancing institutional memory.
