Meet our team

Cody O'Neil
Articled Student


I applied to law school to support Indigenous Peoples’ movements to revitalize their legal systems and decolonize Canadian law. I am a settler of Irish and English descent and grew up as a guest on the lands and waters of the Syilx Okanagan Nation.

I studied in the joint degree program in Canadian Common Law and Indigenous Legal Orders at the University of Victoria, following undergraduate studies in philosophy and astronomy. I previously worked as a research fellow at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation.

I am grateful to be learning from such an experienced and passionate legal team at First Peoples Law. Away from work, you can find me stargazing, reading plays and making community radio.
