Katelynn Cave


Katelynn Cave completed her Bachelor of Arts in Criminology with distinction in 2013 at the University of Alberta.  She earned a Juris Doctorate from the University of Alberta Law School in 2019, and upon completing articles at AKRAM ATTIA LAW GROUP, was admitted to the Alberta bar in June 2020.


While attending law school, Katelynn devoted much of her time to Student Legal Services of Edmonton, a non-profit organization helping those who are low-income and facing legal issues. She began as a volunteer caseworker with the Criminal Law Project, progressing to a Dayleader, and finally took on the position of Coordinator in 2018.  She was also an active member of the Indigenous Law Students’ Association, holding Executive roles each year, including First Year Representative, President, and Vice President Internal. Katelynn is most proud of her work on the Law and Social Media Blog, Truth and ReconciliAction, which led to a published article in Avenue Magazine.


Katelynn is Métis and was born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta. Prior to law school, Katelynn worked as the Provincial Prisons Liaison with the Elizabeth Fry Society of Edmonton, an organization that provides support to women incarcerated in our local jails.  She also worked as a Senior Judicial Clerk at the Court of Queen’s Bench Criminal Division for three years.   These experiences provided a wealth of exposure to many parts of our justice system that taught her about the oppressed and marginalized members of our community who become involved in the criminal justice system, all of which influenced her decision to become a criminal defence lawyer. Katelynn is passionate about the pursuit of justice and is proving herself to be an effective advocate for those in need.
