Meet Dawn

Hi, I’m Dawn Ofner, the Director of Professional Recruitment at Field Law.

When it comes to articling and summer student jobs, I’d love to help answer your questions. Please, don’t be shy! Let me know what’s on your mind.

I make regular appearances  at the University of Alberta and University of Calgary. You may have seen me at the Field Law booth on Career Day or received some job-finding tips from me at your school.

Please email all questions to, and I’ll respond to you as soon as I can.


As the former Director of Education with the Legal Education Society of Alberta, I bring a strong understanding of continuing legal education, adult education, and lawyer competency development. Those skills, along with 30 years of experience in the courts and private practice, help me understand the expectations and demands for the Firm’s lawyers to recruit and develop the best-fit lawyers for Field Law.
