SJE Seminar Series

Social Justice & Equity Seminar Series

In 2021, we are thrilled to be running the annual Social Justice & Equity Seminars, featuring numerous distinguished speakers from the legal field. Over 6 different seminars throughout the year, the Q&A format will provide students with insight into how the law interacts with a given contemporary social justice issue, how you as a law student can get meaningfully involved, and how you might develop a career in the social justice field as a lawyer. 


Upcoming seminar topics include Asylum Seekers & Refugees, Environmental Law, Indigenous Rights, Mental Health and Institutional Abuse. We are excited to announce that for the first time, the LSS will be holding a seminar on the topic of Addiction and the Law, with multiple very interesting and experienced speakers lined up. Students of all year levels and courses are warmly encouraged to attend the seminars and participate by asking questions.


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.
