Vancouver Law School Fair - September 26, Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver

Vancouver Law School Fair 2019 is a joint project organized by the University of Alberta, University of Calgary, and University of British Columbia. This event promotes law school as an after degree option and attracted over 450 students last year. It is open to all ages, including high school students and their parents. Present at the event will be representatives from over 30 North American schools, members of the Canadian Bar Association, BC Civil Liberties, National Committee on Accreditation, BC Law Society, Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers, and the Aboriginal Lawyers Forum. Members from the Law School Admissions Council will be present to demonstrate the new digital LSAT forum and to promote the free Khan Academy LSAT prep course. The Fair is a great opportunity to experience many different aspects of law school as well as life after graduation.


"The PNE Youth Council is in its tenth year and we are looking for 16 high school students who want to build their leadership and networking skills. We established this council to give youth a voice in the community, while giving them the chance to learn about the inside workings of a successful business. Meetings are facilitated by PNE staff onsite with the opportunity to meet business leaders in the community and attend various events and experiences including Fright Nights and concerts. One of our sessions will include our PNE Human Resources team reviewing each student’s resume with a few tips on how to set foot into the job field. Many of our youth have obtained employment with the PNE through this program. We are looking for a diversity of youth including those who are sports-focused, arts-focused, academics, etc. We want youth who are enthusiastic and dedicated to making a difference in the community. PNE Youth Council – application deadline Friday May 10, 2019. We are looking for youth going into grade 11 or 12 as of September 2019."
