Meet our team

Cody O'Neil
Law Student

I am a third year law student at the University of Victoria studying in the joint degree program in Canadian Common Law and Indigenous Legal Orders, following undergraduate studies in philosophy and astronomy. I am a settler of Irish and English ancestry and grew up as a guest in Syilx Territory in Kelowna.

Previously, I worked as a research fellow at the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation in Winnipeg, and most recently as a research analyst in the appraisal field of historical valuation. I have a deep interest in both Aboriginal and Indigenous Law and am grateful to be learning from such an experienced and passionate legal team at First Peoples Law.

Away from work, you can find me photographing stars, reading plays and making community radio.
