Lecture to discuss ethics of trans competent lawyering

On Friday, March 13, a lecture featuring Samuel Singer, assistant professor of law at Thompson Rivers University, will discuss the ethical and professional obligations of lawyers serving trans clients and hearing matters involving trans parties.

Key legal issues facing trans people and topics for continuing legal education for further trans competency in legal areas including family law, criminal law, property law, immigration law, personal injury law, child protection law, civil litigation, and human rights law will also be discussed.

Windsor Law professor Donna Marie Eansor is organizing the free event.

“Professor Singer is a long-time advocate for trans people and has delivered many lectures on trans legal rights,” she says. “As the OBA Foundation Chief Justice of Ontario Fellow in Legal Ethics and Professionalism Research (2019-2020), his perspective on the ethics of trans competent lawyering and judging will be extremely valuable to our legal and campus communities.”

This event is free and open to the public, but interested attendees are asked to register in advance. This program contains two hours of EDI Professionalism Content for attending members of the Law Society of Ontario.
