As a partner with Bishop & McKenzie, Lora is a litigator with a general practice and an interest in employment issues; and collections, security enforcement and foreclosure matters.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Lora earned her first degree in criminology, from the University of Alberta. Her interest in law enforcement prompted her to volunteer with the Edmonton Police Service, attending to citizens’ needs on the front lines when they entered a local police detachment. Those interactions sparked an interest in the human elements of the law, and led to subsequent volunteer involvements 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.
She continues to volunteer as a panel member with the Edmonton Youth Justice Committee, which provides community-based resolutions to youth crime in lieu of a formal court process and time in custody.
Lora speaks conversational Korean, plays piano, volleyball and golf, and is a fan of mystery and fantasy literature, as well as travel.
