SJE Seminar Series

Revamped Social Justice & Equity Seminar Series

We are excited to announce the revamped Social Justice & Equity Seminar (SJE) series. Formerly overseen by the SJE Equity Officer, the series has transformed since the Equity Office's dismantling in 2023.
The initiative previously featured eight seminars covering topics like First Nations Rights, Environmental Justice, Modern Slavery/Human Trafficking, Gender-based Violence, and Transgender and Gender-diverse Rights and the Law. The 2022 series introduced a session on Consent and the Law. With the Equity Office removed in 2023, each SJE office; Women's, Person Of Colour (POC), Queer, and the new Indigenous office conducted a seminar addressing issues within their communities.
2023 Seminars Summary:

  • Women's Seminar: Focused on retaining and advancing women in law, addressing challenges.
