Laura Edwards

I was born and raised in Red Deer, Alberta and lived in Edmonton for seven years while working towards my Bachelor of Science in Biology-Ecology at the University of Alberta. Prior to law school I had a career as a zamboni driver and a field biologist.

I am honoured to represent the Law Students’ Society. We have an excellent executive team this year and our goal is to help you make the most of your time here at Fraser High. The LSS supports students clubs and runs many fun events each year to get students out of the library and make their time here the best it can be. As a law student you will have the opportunity to volunteer, participate in clubs, and attend many fun events that improve the law school experience. It is easy to be involved in the UVic law community; I have been fortunate to have many great opportunities to be involved. In the past two years I acted as an Editor for the Appeal Law Journal, served as the 1L Equity and Diversity Rep and the LSS Health and Wellness Rep, and I am the President of the OUTLaws chapter at UVic Law. I have also attended numerous great social events put on by the LSS and other active student groups. No matter what you are interested in you will find plenty of opportunities to engage!  

In my spare time I enjoy spending as much time outdoors as possible and training for triathlons. You can usually find me swimming, cycling, or running in preparation for my next race. When I am stuck inside I enjoy playing boardgames with friends, reading Fantasy/Fiction novels or drinking craft beer. I also love cats.

If you have any questions, suggestions, or just a want a friendly face to talk to I am always open to chat! Email me, send me a message on Facebook, or stop me in the halls of Fraser to talk. I look forward to getting to know you.
