Matthew B. Blunt B.A.(Hons.) J.D.


Originally from Stonewall, Matthew graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in Psychology (2009). Matthew graduated from the Western Michigan University Cooley Law School in 2017, earning the distinction Magna Cum Laude.

During law school, Matthew interned with the WMU – Cooley Innocence Project, providing legal assistance to wrongfully convicted inmates. In this capacity, he was able to secure DNA testing that excluded one of his clients and set the stage for a new trial. Matthew also served as a resource editor on the Law Review, an associate editor on the Law Journal, and as a member of the mock trial board. Most recently, his article, “Highway to a Headache: Is Tort-Based Automotive Insurance on a Collision Course With Autonomous Vehicles?”, was published in the Willamette Law Review.

In his spare time, Matthew enjoys all things outdoors, and can be found outside year-round; whether fishing, hiking, cross-country skiing, or camping. Professionally, Matthew is interested in pursuing a solicitor’s practice.
