Levi Gordian

Indigenous Legal Studies JD Summer Intensive Program Assistant



Levi is Kwakwaka'wakw from 'Namgis First Nation. He is an incoming 2L JD student at Allard. He grew up in Edmonton, located within the Treaty 6 territory where he completed a Bachelor of Arts in Native Studies. In the summer of 2019 he moved to Vancouver to study at UBC in the Master of Public Health program where he learned how to address Indigenous health issues from an 'upstream' approach. Building off that, he believed that a law degree would complement his education and work experience toward making a difference in the lives of Indigenous peoples and communities through Aboriginal business law. 

Nearly all of his time outside of law school is devoted to hanging out with his four cats who enjoy sunset walks on the beach and hiking in the scenic North Shore trails.
