About Luke Young

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.
