Sidney Zarabi is an articling student in Smart & Biggar’s Ottawa office. He has recently earned a J.D. from the University of Windsor. During his legal studies, Sidney actively volunteered within the legal community as a senior case worker at the Community Legal Aid, a business associate with the Windsor Review of Legal and Social Issues (WRLSI), as co-chair at the Windsor Law Mental Health and Wellness Initiative, and as a project facilitator with Pro Bono Students Canada and Women’s Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF).
Sidney completed his M.A.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo where he specialized in the area of Silicon Devices and Integrated Circuits.
During his graduate studies, Sidney was recognized for his academic achievement with the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS), University of Waterloo’s President's Graduate Scholarship, and the respected Waterloo Institute for Nanotechnology (WIN) Fellowship.
He completed his B.A.Sc in Nanotechnology Engineering from the University of Waterloo.
