Hayley Smith is a third year student at the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University. She originally hails from St. John’s, Newfoundland and completed a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education at Memorial University. Before coming to law school she spent a year as a High School teacher in the United Kingdom. She has always been enamored with music, television, stand-up comedy and film and is very excited to be able to participate in the Halifax arts community by using her legal background (as she is, sadly, not particularly artistically talented herself!). She is an enthusiastic volunteer for the Atlantic Film Festival, where she is lucky enough to pre-screen film submissions for the festival, and hopes that she will continue to be involved in all aspects of the Halifax art community in the future.
Nick Jasperse worked in the areas of events management, copyright and licensing with the federal public service before attending the Schulich School of Law. An amateur musician with a long working and volunteering background in professional theatre, Nick’s interests lie at the intersection of the arts, technology and law. He is excited to have the opportunity to work with ALIS and help to continue to build its profile within the law school and arts communities.
