Our Legal Team

Luke Young

Associate

I joined Weir Bowen as a summer student in 2016, and returned as an articling student the following year after obtaining my Juris Doctor from the University of Alberta. Since my call to the bar in 2018, my practice has been focused on civil litigation in a variety of contexts including personal injury, medical malpractice, insurance, and corporate and commercial matters.

A born-and-raised Edmontonian, I graduated from the University of Alberta’s School of Business before studying law. During my undergraduate studies, I spent a semester abroad at the University of Wollongong in Australia. In law school, I spent a second semester studying abroad, this time at the University of Hong Kong. I also acted in Law Show and suited up for a number of intramural sports teams.

I joined Weir Bowen as a summer student in 2016, and then returned as an articling student the following year. In my free time, I play a variety of sports including hockey, soccer, tennis, and golf. I dabble in music, writing, and woodworking I also travel whenever I can, having spent time in recent years exploring Europe, Southeast Asia, and Central America.
