Class Actions

Dual JD students write articles for The Lawyer's Daily

Last week, two Windsor Law and Detroit Mercy Law students enrolled in the Canadian & American Dual JD program wrote articles for The Lawyer's Daily, published by LexisNexis Canada.

In their respective articles, Sarina Nezhadian (2L) wrote about COVID-19 and the difficulties for Ontario inmates, while Matthew Chikaonda (3L) wrote about how Bayer AG's strategy in Roundup class actions is fraught with reputational risks.

Thanks to video conferencing technology and a unique collaboration between Windsor Law’s Professor Jasminka Kalajdzic, Stanford Law’s Deborah Hensler, and Tilburg University’s Ianika Tzankova, Windsor Law students had the opportunity to learn about class action regimes in Canada, the U.S., the Netherlands and Germany, and to engage with students in each jurisdiction — all without leaving Windsor.
