Social Justice & Equity
In 2020, we are thrilled to be running the annual Social Justice & Equity Seminars, featuring numerous distinguished speakers from the legal field. Over 4 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 and Animal Law. 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.
