GALL LEVIT joined Black Gropper in March 2019, having previously worked representing employees and trade unions at another Vancouver-based labour law firm and prior to that, at a leading Toronto union-side labour firm. She has a passion for labor rights and workplace justice and has gained experience working with both private and public-sector unions. Gall also has a keen interest in constitutional law and human rights law.
Gall graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School. During law school Gall was involved with a number of social justice and legal aid initiatives. She developed her passion for labour law and worker’s rights issues through a placement with the United Food and Commercial Workers union working on initiatives relating to Canada’s Seasonal Agricultural Workers Program. In addition, Gall was a student caseworker at a Toronto legal aid clinic where she provided legal representation in the areas of social assistance, violence and health as well as supporting community organizing initiatives. Gall has volunteered with several non-profits including Pro Bono Students Canada, the Justice and Corporate Accountability Project and the Osgoode Feminist Collective.
Gall strongly believes in the importance of workers organizing to protect their rights and supports workers in the fight for workplace equality and dignity. She also believes that while law has for centuries been used to entrench systemic inequalities, it can be used as a tool to dismantle systems of oppression.
