As a partner with Bishop & McKenzie, Lora is a litigator with a general practice and an interest in Employment Law, Collections, Security Enforcement and Foreclosure matters. Her practice also extends to Condominium and Real Estate Law.
Lora earned her first degree in criminology from the University of Alberta. Her interest in law enforcement inspired her to volunteer with the Edmonton Police Service by helping citizens when they entered their local police detachment. Those interactions sparked an interest in the human elements of the law and led to subsequent volunteer involvement with the Edmonton Youth Justice Committee and Student Legal Services. While a student, she was also the co-editor-in-chief of the Alberta Law Review.
Lora is the past Chair of the Edmonton Youth Justice Committee, which provides community-based resolutions to youth crime instead of a formal court process that includes time in custody. She is a board member of Momentum Walk-In Counselling. Lora also volunteers as a CBA student mentor and takes part in the Court of Queen’s Bench Amicus Program.
Lora speaks conversational Korean, plays piano, volleyball and golf, and is a fan of mystery and fantasy literature. She enjoys spending time with her family and kids.
