Jason S. McCulloch
He / Him
Admitted to the Alberta bar in 2000, Jason completed his B.A. (1996) and his LL.B. (1999), both at the University of Alberta. He is a solicitor with a focus on real estate law and Wills.
Jason has taught the Bar Admission Courses in Real Estate, been a section co-chair of the Real Estate section with the Canadian Bar Association, has taught several courses to real estate agents for the Edmonton Real Estate Board, and has been a panelist and chair on numerous courses offered by the Legal Education Society of Alberta, including multiple appearances as a speaker at the Lake Louise Refresher on Real Estate.
Jason’s volunteer experiences include work within his community covering everything from planning functions, serving food/drink, neighborhood trash clean up, and filling in for the Easter Bunny to hide eggs throughout the neighbourhood – though please don’t tell the kids it was him. Jason has also enjoyed acting in a local fundraiser variety show as well as acting in various theatrical performances important to the legal community such as Law Day (which provides free legal education for the general public) and Players De Novo -- a yearly production that has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars benefitting the Victoria School of the Arts as well as local theatre companies.
When Jason isn’t working, he’s busy raising two kids, riding his mountain bike, and playing his guitar (poorly). Jason also writes screenplays when the rest of his family are sleeping. He has won or placed high in several screenwriting contests including a top 50th placement (out of over 7200 other scripts) in one of the world’s most prestigious screen writing contests – the Nicholl Fellowship (a contest ran by the same Academy who hands out the Oscars each year). Rumour has it he’ll be a contestant in the next installment of “Dancing with the Stars”. Although that last part is a total lie, a story about an aging lawyer with bad knees and no coordination entering a dance competition could make for an interesting screenplay someday.
