Staying Connected

As you will quickly discover, students of Allard Hall heavily rely on FaceBook as a convenient and effective form of communication. If you want to stay up to date on everything from used text-books, LSS events, sports and clubs opportunities, lunch time seminars and more, this is the place to do it:

Preparing for Law School

As my predecessor Rachel Lehman (The Orientation Coordinator for 2014), the best thing you can do over the summer before 1L begins is to relax, and enjoy time with your friends, family and your favorite pastimes/hobbies. That being said, if you’re eager to learn more about the Allard School of Law faculty, course options, finance information, sports and clubs or the vibrant social scene on campus, you can do so via the links below.

Vancouver – Your New Home

Ask any student in the program about their experience at law school so far and one of the first thing’s they’ll tell you about is the work load. Law school is tough! Part of being successful involves finding time to do you. Take a breather, and remind yourself that there is more to life than the library and the next assignment or exam. Students of the Allard School of Law are very fortunate to live in the beautiful city of Vancouver. Don’t forget to explore the vibrant arts, culture and outdoors the city has to offer.

There will be more opportunities to use your legal education to give back than you can possibly imagine once your law degree begins, but if you’d like to get involved with the community outside of the programs available through the faculty, you can find more information at the links below.
