Irina Ceric, Assistant Professor

Irina Ceric (she/her) joined the Faculty of Law as an Assistant Professor in July of 2022. Prof. Ceric holds a PhD from Osgoode Hall Law School and comes to Windsor Law with a wealth of teaching, practice, and community experience. She is called to the Bars of British Columbia, Ontario, and New York.

Prof. Ceric’s core research interests lie in the intersection of law and social movements, with a particular focus on the regulation and criminalization of dissent by movements for social and environmental justice and Indigenous sovereignty. She has written extensively about the use of injunctions and contempt of court, a research interest that arose out of her work as a lawyer and legal support organizer. Prof. Ceric is currently at work on a book, based on her doctoral research, tracing the history and politics of the movement defence in Canada and the US since the late 1990s. Her research employs activist-scholar methodologies and draws on scholarly literature from both law scholarship and related disciplines, including law and society, social movement studies, clinical legal education, and abolitionism.


Prof. Ceric teaches Property Law and Access to Justice and her publications are available at
