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.
