Victor Martins (Articling 2020-2021)

Victor graduated in the top 10 percent of his class at Osgoode Hall Law School, where he won the prize for first year tort law, as well as the adminstrative law prize in his third year. 

During his time at Osgoode, Victor served as a criminal law division leader in the Community Legal Aid Services Programme, where he managed a rotating caseload and advocated for clients before Judges and Justices of the Peace at the Ontario Court of Justice. In his second year, Victor also acted as a research assistant to Professor Allan Hutchinson, performing jurisprudential research in the area of tort law. Victor also gave back to the Osgoode Hall community by serving twice as an orientation week leader and as a peer notetaker in multiple semesters. 

Outside of the office, Victor is a disciplined runner who has completed the annual Terry Fox run since 2014, as well as two marathons and counting. He enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching movies, cooking and more importantly, eating! 

After growing up down the road from Loopstra Nixon for much of his life and working as a 2019 summer student there, Victor is proud to be at Loopstra Nixon as an articling student for the 2020–2021 term. 

Victor also holds a B.A. (Hons) double major in Criminology and Sociology from York University, where he graduated with the summa cum laude distinction.
