Dates of existence



Established in 1907, the Vancouver Law Students' Society (VLSS) was initially open to all students-at-law and articled clerks residing in Vancouver. The objective of the Society was to organize educational and social activities for the city's law students. The group lobbied the provincial government and the Law Society to establish a local law school to promote legal education. The efforts of the VLSS resulted in the establishment of the Vancouver Law School. This school operated almost continuously from 1914 to 1944. However, when the University of British Columbia established a Law School at its Point Grey campus,1945, the Vancouver Law Students' Society ceased operations.
