Tim Louis grew up in Vancouver, studying political science at UBC, from where he holds an LLB. Tim has always had a political mind, and ran for elected office in Vancouver multiple times. In 1990 he was elected to the Vancouver Park Board and reelected in 1993. In 1999 he became a City Councillor for Vancouver, and served two terms. He currently runs his own practice, which he started immediately after finishing his articles with former Vancouver City Councillor Harry Rankin in 1984.
Mr. Louis was first drawn to the law by his passion to fight for accessibility for folks with disabilities, and continues to advocate today for increased access to justice.
Tim Louis participated in the Peter A Allard School of Law History Project in December 2016. He spoke about starting his own practice, his service in local politics, and the impact of technology on his work.
