🎙Welcome to The Applicant Podcast. I’m your host, Rebecca Tripp. I’ve graduated from five (5) post-secondary school programs (attending both university and college), I own my own law office now and no, I’m not a lawyer. I’m a licensed paralegal and immigration consultant and on this YouTube channel/podcast, I want to discuss education, immigration, and the law. 🇨🇦
In this weeks episode I speak with Lawyer and Podcast Host, Erin O’Rourke. Erin started started her law firm in 2020 during the peak of the pandemic and then started Off the Tracks Podcast in early 2021 with her friend and fellow lawyer Piper Riley Thompson.
Side note: Their podcast was one of the first podcasts I was a guest on and it helped me pull the trigger on starting my own podcast. Click here to listen.
In this episode I get the opportunity to discuss with Erin her path that lead her to becoming a lawyer (including her time in Tel Aviv), her current work in immigration tribunals and detention reviews, along with what she would change in the legal industry if she had the power to do so. It was a pleasure to catch up with Erin and I hope you all enjoy this episode as much as we did!
