In 1989, during his second year at Osgoode Hall Law School, Douglas was given the following advice from one of his professors: “Law is hard work; it also is stressful, rewarding, frustrating, and, if you are lucky, you will be well paid. Only one of those features will keep you from burning out in 5 to 7 years.”
Douglas decided to focus on Immigration and Refugee law because it was rewarding. He has now been practicing in this area in Vancouver for more than 20 years.
He is passionate about refugee and detention issues but has significant experience and interest in all areas of immigration law.
Douglas can often be found sharing his skills and experience with community groups, at legal conferences, and is often called upon for media commentary and analysis.
