Sarah Kondor joined Dawson, Duckett, Garcia & Johnson as an Articling Student in July 2023. She is articling under Mona Duckett, K.C.
Sarah has been interested in pursuing a career in criminal law from a young age – so interested that she began using her summer breaks to job shadow various criminal defence lawyers beginning in high school.
With her ultimate goal of becoming a criminal defence lawyer in mind, Sarah graduated from the University of Alberta in 2020 with a Bachelor of Arts with Honours in Sociology with First Class Honours. She earned a place on the Dean’s List in all four years of her undergraduate studies.
Sarah continued this trend of academic excellence throughout her law school career, graduating with a Juris Doctor with distinction in 2023. While in law school, Sarah achieved a Dean’s List ranking once again, while also being awarded many merit-based scholarships, including the Abe W Miller Memorial Prize in Criminal Law for academic achievement in her first-year criminal law course.
During law school, Sarah focused her studies on criminal law. She excelled in courses such as Evidence, Criminal Procedure, Advocacy, Constitutional Litigation, Law & Policing, Advanced Evidence, and Sentencing.
Sarah is passionate about access to justice. During law school, Sarah worked as a Dayleader with Student Legal Service of Edmonton. This role allowed her to develop her advocacy skills while providing legal information and assistance to Edmonton’s low-income community. As a Dayleader, Sarah worked tirelessly to secure the best possible outcome for dozens of individuals by negotiating with Crown Prosecutors, filing pre-trial applications, and litigating important legal issues.
Sarah understands that the criminal justice system can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate on your own. She would be happy to meet with you to discuss your concerns and options for your criminal and quasi-criminal matters.
