After the success of last year's national forum (which garnered the attention of Global News), Law Needs Feminism Because is so thrilled to announce that we are gearing up for a second iteration. This year, the McGill Law crew passed on the torch to the uOttawa LNFB Chapter to organize our second national forum.
This year's forum will be held on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at the University of Ottawa and be on the theme access to justice.
We hope to shine greater light on the ways that systems of power and privilege intersect to deprive marginalized and under-represented communities of their ability to create, shape and transform the legal institutions that govern them. In an attempt to identify ways in which the legal community can mobilize together to address barriers, we aspire to highlight successes and also map out areas for improvement.
Timed with International Women's Week, we hope you will be able to join us as we unite together industry professionals, academics and community mobilizers to continue propelling this much-needed conversation forward.
