Lynn Momprevil is a summer student in Gowling WLG's Vancouver office. She just completed her second year at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia.
During her legal studies, Lynn has been an active member of the community, serving in such roles as vice president of student affairs for the Law Students' Society and co-president of the Black Law Students' Association.
In Lynn's first year of law school, she received the Kim-Bautista Award in Law, which is awarded to students who are the first in their family to attend law school and have demonstrated academic excellence and community service. In her second year, she received the Catherine Chow Award in Law for IBPOC Students. Lynn was selected as a 2021-2022 Peter A. Allard School of Law student ambassador, a role that she looks forward to continuing in the 2022-2023 school year.
When she began law school, Lynn was able to take on a directed research project, concerning the impacts of zoning law on the demographic spread of the city of Vancouver. This research project confirmed her interest in real estate and construction law. She is looking forward to being exposed to a variety of different practice areas this summer.
Prior to law school, Lynn attended the University of British Columbia, majoring in political science. Afterwards, she worked as the marketing, communications & events assistant at a local non-profit, the Kitsilano Neighbourhood House.
