SJE Seminar Series
Social Justice & Equity Seminar Series
In 2022, we are thrilled to announce the continuation of the Social Justice & Equity Seminar series. Featuring numerous distinguished guest speakers from the legal field and other professions, six seminars are being run throughout the year, with students having the opportunity to listen to a variety of insights directly from lawyers/professionals, whilst also having the chance to speak with the panellists and ask questions. These seminars will give students a unique insight into how the law interacts with a variety of social justice issues, and how you as a law student can get meaningfully involved, and learn what it is like to work in a social justice field.
Upcoming seminar topics include First Nations rights, Environmental Justice, Modern Slavery/Human Trafficking, Gender-based violence and Transgender and Gender-diverse Rights and the Law. We are excited to announce that for the first time, the LSS will be holding a seminar on the topic of Consent and the Law, with multiple very interesting and experienced speakers lined up to speak on this very important subject.
Students of all year levels and courses are warmly encouraged to attend the seminars and participate by asking questions. All seminars will be conducted on Zoom.
This seminar series is a great alternative to the very selective Just Leadership Program as it covers many of the same topics and is conducted in a similar format.
