University of Windsor  alumna Jacqueline Horvat has been elected to the Law Society of Ontario’s board of directors.

Horvat, who was called to the Ontario bar in 2002 after earning her law degree from the University of Windsor in 2001, has been elected the Law Society’s treasurer, the top elected official of the body that regulates lawyers and paralegals practising in the province.

“I am honoured to be elected by my peers to this leadership role and am dedicated to working with the board to help the Law Society make decisions that are in the public interest,” Horvat said.
“I look forward to working with benchers, stakeholders and fellow licensees to ensure that diverse points of view are taken into account in order to serve the public well.”

Horvat is a civil and commercial litigation lawyer and a founding partner of Spark Law, a firm with offices in Toronto and Windsor. Splitting her time between the two cities, Horvat is an occasional instructor and frequent guest lecturer at the UWindsor Faculty of Law. She is also involved in collaborative projects at the University, including the Reclaim Pro Bono Project which provides free legal advice and representation to victims of online harassment, impersonation, and other technology-facilitated violations.

Horvat is also the Ontario representative on the Council of the Federation of Law Societies of Canada and a member of the Independent Advisory Board for Supreme Court of Canada Judicial Appointments.

Horvat officially takes office as treasurer June 28th.
