Administrative history

Established in 1907, the Vancouver Law Students’ Society was originally open to “all students-at-law” and articled clerks residing in the City of Vancouver. The objective of the Society was to organize educational and social activities for the city’s law students. To promote legal education, the group lobbied the provincial government and the Law Society to establish a local law school. In large part the efforts of the VLSS resulted in the establishment of the Vancouver Law School which operated almost continuously from 1914 to 1944. When the University of British Columbia established a Law School at its Point Grey campus the Vancouver Law Students’ Society ceased operations.

Custodial history

The material was donated to the University Archives in 2009 by Wes Pue.

Scope and content

The fonds consists of a 2-page typescript constitution (ca. 1907) and a minute book containing handwritten Society minutes (1907-1911).
