Yaseen Manan

Yaseen Manan is an articling student in Gowling WLG’s Ottawa office.

Prior to law school, Yaseen completed his BSc and MSc in Biochemistry, where he published two theses. For his senior thesis, he studied the binding of apoptosis proteins to membrane models for cancer research, which eventually lead to a publication. During his MSc in Biochemistry, he took on the challenge of solving the 3-D structure of a membrane protein. Yaseen also discovered his creative side when he had the opportunity to create a logo, in addition to marketing material, for the Life Science Career Development Society at the University of Toronto while defending his MSc.

Yaseen’s experiences have led him to be passionate about Intellectual Property law. He competed in the 2018 Harold G. Fox IP Moot during his final year at law school. He has now finished law school and hopes to combine his interests with his law degree to provide his clients with the service they need.
