Joanna Lane

Global Editor

Biography

I joined Chambers in 2010 and took on the role of editor of Chambers Canada in its inaugural year in 2014. Since 2019 I have also been responsible for the Global (ROW) team and research covering Africa, the Middle East, the Caribbean and Offshore jurisdictions.

Originally from Montreal, Canada, I previously worked at a nightlife magazine in Singapore before moving to London. I also taught English as a second language in Taiwan, and worked briefly as a research consultant at a professional research firm in Ottawa, focusing on Aboriginal land claims, litigation and residential school settlements.

I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Public Affairs and Policy Management from Carleton University in Ottawa and completed my Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism at the London School of Journalism in 2011.

I live in Hertfordshire with my husband and two-year-old daughter Lucy.
