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.


Vancouver Youth Parliament
 
Vancouver Youth Parliament is one of six regionals hosted by the British Columbia Youth Parliament, the goals of which are to provide youth with an accessible opportunity to learn about parliamentary procedure as used in the BC Legislature, improve their public speaking skills, and debate relevant issues.
 
Members of the Vancouver Youth Parliament are 14-18 year old students from Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver and the Sea to Sky area nominated by a reputable service organization or school. They will take part in a three day model parliamentary sitting at UBC, learning the ins and outs of parliamentary style debate and planning various community service and fundraising projects to take place over the course of this year.
 
Attached is the application form for the 32nd Vancouver Youth Parliament. A limited number of bursaries are available for students who are unable to pay the $50 registration fee.
