Jane Kupolati


Jane Kupolati


Full name – Jane Kupolati

Where are you from? Lagos, Nigeria.

What is your formal title at HFL? Paralegal

Break it down for us, what does that really mean? I am set to start Articling in a few months. Pending that, I spend a lot of time assisting lawyers with the legal back work – researching legal issues, drafting applications, and offering other assistance as needed to move a client’s file forward.

How long have you been with HFL? I have been with HFL since May 2022.

In 140 characters or less, tell me what interested you about working in a law firm as your career? It has always been law. I would often take some time during my summer holidays as a high schooler to go to court to observe cases out of curiosity. The desire has been there ever since.

Why do you do what you do? To put simply: Passion. Law makes me feel fulfilled. The legal profession might sound boring to some, but I see it as an art that allows for creativity, which excites me!

Tell us, what are your legit credentials? I have a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) Honours degree from the University of York, United Kingdom. I also have my Master of Laws (LL.M) degree from McGill University located in the beautiful city of Montreal, Quebec.

Are you an early bird of night owl? Night Owl. I come alive at night!

The best piece of advice you’ve ever received? I received this advice in law school: Know how to learn. The law changes too often to remain stagnant in skill and knowledge.

Sweet or salty? What’s your go-to craveable snack? Snacks are overrated. I like proper MEALS.

What’s the best thing about working at HFL? The people and the work culture.

Tell us a fun fact about you that you can share. I have lived in 5 different cities in the span of 7 years – one in the United Kingdom and four in Canada (in four different provinces).

Tell us your hidden talent. My talent is not so hidden. I am a musician. I play the piano, acoustic guitar, and sing.

What energises you at work? The work itself. I thrive on researching legal issues that do not have straightforward answers or resolutions.

Who do you admire and why? My parents. They have been the catalyst for all my successes. They are super supportive of everything I do and give the best advice. Also, they are the most brilliant lawyers I know (and that’s a fact!).

What are you currently binge watching on Netflix? I recently finished watching “For Life” and “Lincoln Lawyer”. More recently, I have been watching a lot of crime documentaries.

Favourite go-to local spot (coffee, retail food etc.)? I spend too much money at Tim Hortons than I would ever admit.
