Revived speaker series to feature Supreme Court justice

On Feb. 6, Windsor Law will welcome Supreme Court Justice Andromache Karakatsanis, speaking under the auspices of Windsor Law’s Women and the Law student group as part of the Kathleen A. Lahey Feminist Legal Lecture Series.

Named to commemorate the work of former Windsor Law professor Kathleen Lahey, who now teaches at Queen’s University, the series revives one founded in 1993 that had featured such prominent speakers as Constance Backhouse, Mona Stonefish Jacobs, Claire Young, Patricia Hughes, Sheila McIntyre, Brenda Cossman, and Judge Micheline Rawlins, but has been on hiatus for the last few years.

“By reviving this annual event, Women and the Law seeks to inspire Windsor Law students to advocate for change within the community,” says Women and the Law chair Mallory Allan. “We seek to engage students within the Faculty of Law and the broader community in discussions about the legal issues that affect women within the legal system, female law students, and women in the legal profession.”

A question and answer period will follow the lecture. It is open to University of Windsor faculty, staff, and students, but attendees are asked to register in advance.
