Founded in 2020, the Vancouver The Branch of Youth Leaders in Law was fundamental in YLL's expansion and officially became YLL BC in 2023. To date, YLL BC remains the largest youth-led legal organization on the West Coast, having engaged over 1,500 youths and hosted 10+ legal education events with hundreds of participants.

YLL has some exciting upcoming events, including the YLL Future in Law Event this summer! Following our annual conference in March, this event will provide aspiring students with the tools and resources regarding future steps toward law school and other legal-related pathways, including LNAT crash courses for students looking to apply to UK law schools, admissions and law student panels from universities across BC, as well as scholarship organizations that make law dreams all the more affordable.
