“You can't separate peace from freedom because no one can be at peace unless he has his freedom.” - Malcolm X
Kamran Sajid (he/him) is a strong advocate of his clients' rights—a passion that developed from growing up in a difficult inner-city neighbourhood in Cornwall, Ontario. The perseverance resulted in becoming the first individual in his household to graduate high school.
Kamran was called to the Bar in 2022 after articling with a well-respected criminal defence firm in Toronto. He conducted several successful bail hearings and assisted in trials for clients facing charges that ranged from sexual assault to an assault with a weapon.
While in law school at the University of Toronto, Kamran was involved in the LAWS program which was aimed at encouraging youth to enter the legal profession. He was also part of the editorial team for the Indigenous Law Journal—the first and only Canadian journal that exclusively covers Indigenous legal issues.
Prior to law school, Kamran double majored in philosophy and sociology at the University of Toronto, graduating with high distinction.
In Kamran’s spare time, he spends time playing basketball, watching Laker games (often nervously), and making both friends and family laugh with his energetic personality.
