Kerry Sheppard, Options Solutions’ Law School Education Consultant, has the experience and perspective to help post-secondary students assess the pros and cons of a legal career, to identify their law school options, and to navigate the admissions process. From his many years as a lawyer and recruiter, he has significant knowledge about law schools in Canada and abroad, and a unique insight about the opportunities available to post-secondary students thinking about a career in law.
Kerry graduated from the University of Victoria Law School in 1986, and was called to the British Columbia Bar in 1987. In his nearly 30 years as a lawyer, Kerry has practiced both as a solicitor and as a litigator. He has practiced both in a large national firm and in a smaller “boutique” firm, and he has practiced as in-house counsel both in the public sector (with the Public Guardian & Trustee of British Columbia) and in the private sector with The Law Society of British Columbia. Since 2010, Kerry has been the Director of Student Programs for a highly-respected national firm. In that role, he recruits law students to article with the firm, and travels regularly to Canadian law schools to conduct interviews and make presentations.
