Elias Munshya

In 2007, I made the trip from my native Zambia to Canada as a student at Ambrose University in Calgary, Alberta. I have since worked in industrial risk mitigation and security, counselling, pastoral ministry, and as  provincial director of Child Evangelism Fellowship.

I am now a registered student-at-law with the Law Society of Alberta (LSA). As a student-at-law, I must do a term of articles to satisfy requirements for the call to the Alberta bar. On March 1st 2015, I started my first two-month composite articling position with Kubitz and Company, a personal injury law firm based in Calgary. My principal was Mr. Walter Kubitz, Q.C. In May 2015, I articled at Howard Law Office. Ms. Claire McMordie of West End Legal Centre (WELC) in Calgary offered me a term of articles starting July 2, 2015. At WELC I work with both Claire and her partner M. Jenny McMordie in the areas of civil litigation, wills and estates, and corporate-commercial law. My prospective areas of practice after my bar call are those that are closely connected to social justice, constitutionalism and the rule of law.

On this website, using a multi-disciplinary approach, I combine a passion for law, theology, history and politics to reflect on issues affecting both personal and national development in Zambia, Canada and the rest of the world.  I do this with the conviction that our true greatness lies ahead of us. I also passionately believe that we owe a duty to the next generation to do all we can to make their world a better world.
