A Lawyer's Right Hand

Our very own Nabila Lalani was recently featured in Capilano University’s 2018/2019 Viewbook as the Student Representative for the Faculty of Business and Professional Studies. A strong advocate for higher education, Nabila hopes to pave the way for future generations by creating greater and more affordable access to academic resources. Read on for Nabila’s full story.

Ever since taking Law 12 in high school, Nabila Lalani had a fascination with the legal profession. Pondering the next steps in her career as she earned her undergraduate degree in criminology, she discovered Capilano’s Paralegal program.
“I really enjoyed the intellectual challenge,” Nabila says. “That together with the exceptional faculty members were what allowed me to flourish.”
Now, as a paralegal in Digby Leigh & Company’s real estate department, Nabila plays an integral role in day to day operations — working closely with the lawyers, drafting and reviewing documents, and communicating with clients and outside counsel.
Being able to help clients through an exciting time in their lives — like purchasing their first home — makes all the hard work worth it.
“The most rewarding part is seeing their reactions at the end of a deal,” she says. “We aren’t in this field to be rewarded but when your clients appreciate the work you do, it makes it that much more worthwhile.”
