Bryce is an articling student at JFK Law in the Toronto Office. Bryce graduated from McGill University’s dual common law and civil law program in 2024, receiving a Juris Doctor and Bachelor of Civil Law.

While studying at McGill, Bryce was greatly inspired by the first-year course Indigenous Legal Traditions, taught by Professor Aaron Mills. After his first year, he sought out opportunities to continue to learn about Indigenous legal traditions, completing a summer internship with the Indigenous Law Centre at the University of Saskatchewan, and writing term papers on Anishinaabe and Crown treaty paradigms with Professor Nandini Ramanujam as well as on the applications of copyright to Indigenous traditional cultural expressions with Professor Kirsten Anker. Bryce is grateful to his professors of Indigenous Legal Traditions Aaron Mills and Kirsten Anker, as well as the Elders, knowledge keepers, and scholars who have guided his journey thus far in coming to understand reconciliation and his place within this. He looks forward to continuing to learn, engage with Indigenous peoples, and offer his own gifts at JFK.

Prior to studying law, Bryce worked as a pianist and music educator. He received a Master of Music from McGill University as well as a Bachelor of Music from Western University, helped to found two not-for-profit music programs, and toured as the pianist for two operatic productions with Jeunesses Musicales Canada. Bryce continued his engagement with the arts throughout his time studying law, working as a policy analyst for both the Department of Canadian Heritage and the Canada Council for the Arts. Outside of work, Bryce enjoys playing the piano, cycling, and spending time with his partner Lydia and cat Clara.
