Social Justice Fellowship Information Session:
The Windsor Law Social Justice Fellowship Program supports students interested in obtaining exposure to social justice advocacy in either a domestic or an international context. The Program is designed to enable the Fellows to experience enriching professional and intellectual opportunities.
The Social Justice Fellowship program:
facilitates a sustained and rigorous inquiry into the contexts of socio-legal problems and oppressive dimensions of the law and the legal system, including dispossession, domination, colonization, subordination, privilege, poverty, and racialization and/or occupation, settlement, and conquest;
promotes and furthers an anti-racist, anti-oppression perspective where the central goal is to engage in transformative systemic change to ameliorate the lived experiences of marginalized people;
selects students from a pool of outstanding upper-year candidates with a demonstrated commitment to anti-racism anti-oppression, and decolonization; and
requires students to satisfy a directed reading requirement (which can be viewed as part of their transnational/perspective options) with their faculty advisors once the fellowship is completed. Exceptions can be made with the approval of the SJF Committee.
If you are interested in learning more about the Social Justice Fellowship, come to our information session on October 18th at 12:00 PM.
