Tyler Severson

Tyler Severson is a summer law student in Gowling WLG's Calgary office. He currently attends the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia.

During his first year of law school, Tyler gained practical experience by volunteering as a clinician with the Law Students Legal Advice Program (LSLAP), assisting low-income clients in the Lower Mainland region with their legal issues.

Prior to law school, he studied at the University of Victoria, majoring in Political Science. He was awarded multiple scholarships during his undergraduate years, including the President’s Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement and the Walter D. Young Book Prize for high standing in Political Science courses. Tyler also played for the University of Victoria Men’s hockey team during his undergrad and achieved the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League Academic Excellence Award all three years.

Tyler is interested in gaining a broad experience this summer by engaging in as many different areas of law as he can. He is passionate about becoming a lawyer because achieving beneficial outcomes for clients comes from a balance of hard-work, creativity, teamwork and interpersonal skills, all of which he believes will translate from his hockey career.

Tyler believes that success builds on a positive team culture. His goal as a summer student is to learn from the professionals and incorporate their feedback while making meaningful contributions to the primary objective of achieving our clients' goals.
