Jodi L. Hubler, LL.B.
2002 LL.B., University of Alberta
2003 Call to Alberta Bar
Jodi comes from a family which has always worked tirelessly on behalf of the labour movement so she has been actively committed to labour issues and social justice from an early age. She walked on picket lines and worked on election campaigns before she was old enough to vote. Jodi began her legal career as a legal assistant in a law firm devoted to union-side labour law.
In 1997, Jodi made the decision to enter university full-time. At Carleton University in Ottawa, she began working towards a degree in social work. During her two years of studies at Carleton, Jodi was granted the University's General Scholarship for Academic Achievement.
In 1999, Jodi gained early admission to law school at the University of Alberta so she changed her focus to the study of law. During her time in law school, Jodi volunteered with Student Legal Services in both the civil and criminal divisions providing her with hands-on experience providing legal assistance to low income people and those incarcerated. The University of Alberta awarded Jodi with the John A. Weir Memorial Scholarship.
In 2000, she continued her legal studies at the University of Ottawa in order to live with her partner, Sean McManus. She graduated with her law degree the following year then she and Sean moved back to Alberta where she completed her articles and was called to the Alberta Bar.
In addition to being a mom to their two children, Jodi works alongside Sean to assist him with the work he does representing fire fighters across Canada.
