Charlotte Williams

Charlotte Williams is a summer law student in Gowling WLG’s Calgary office. She is currently a 1L student at the University of Calgary.

During her legal studies, Charlotte volunteered as a bilingual caseworker with Student Legal Assistance, representing low-income clients in criminal matters, and placed second in the 2024 BLG mock trial competition. These combined experiences have given Charlotte a taste for both written and oral argumentation and advocacy.

In 2017, Charlotte completed a Journalism BA at Concordia University, where she honed a passion for storytelling and learning across disciplines to better understand the stories she reported. Shortly after graduating, Charlotte was drawn to Vancouver’s fast-paced commercial film industry. As a production coordinator, she oversaw complex filming projects and helped startups and legacy brands alike bring their bright ideas to the big screen. Charlotte has served on the board of the Commercial Production Association of Western Canada since 2023.

Charlotte has an innate interest in people, and highly values developing strong relationships in and outside of the workplace. After many years of working in client-facing roles, Charlotte looks forward to bringing her curiosity and relentless work ethic to her advocacy work with Gowling WLG. As a summer student, Charlotte is most excited to learn about medical malpractice litigation.
