Professor Macfarlane subject of student documentary

University of Windsor film student Braunte Petric hasn’t even begun her graduate studies and she’s already making her mark—TV Ontario has named her work Defender among the 10 finalists in its Short Doc Contest.

The film features an interview with Windsor Law professor Julie Macfarlane, founder of the National Self-Represented Litigants Project, which advocates for access to justice.

Judges will award first, second, and third prizes, but the public will determine the People’s Choice winner. Voting is open through Sept. 16; watch all entries and cast a ballot on the contest website.
