Justice Ross Collver moved from Thunder Bay, Ontario in 1954 to study English and History at UBC. He went on to complete his law degree and graduated in 1960.
After working in general practice for several years, Justice Collver began a judicial career that spanned BC’s Provincial, County and Supreme Courts. His many accomplishments include being a dispute mediator for separated parents and a board member for BC’s Lawyers Assistance Program. He humbly describes his career as “rewarding and fulfilling”.
Justice Collver visited Allard School of Law in December 2015, and reflected on his time as a law student as well as the distinguished legal career that followed.
