YLL 2022

Following the expansion of Youth Leaders in Law across Canada, YLL 2022 will be split into two components: a national conference followed by a regional conference. The entire event will be held virtually over the course of two days from March 5th to 6th. 

The national conference will take place on March 5th, and will be available for attendees across Canada. Regardless of where you are across the country, we encourage you to attend - the national component will have a focus on Indigenous law and Indigenous communities on a nationwide scale. This conference will be available to all high-school students globally.

Clock Gears

Information for the regional components on March 6th after the national component can be found above.

The regional components are conferences that are meant to be targeted specifically for attendees based on where they live. Note that you are not required to be from a region to attend any of the regional conferences - during registration, you will be asked to select whichever region you are closest to. If you are an international student, you will be asked to indicate which country you will be joining from. Refer to each regional chapter's page for further details for their schedules, speakers, activities, etc. 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED YLL 2022!
