Assoc. Dean Laverne Jacobs comments on mandatory mask policies

In recent media interviews, Associate Dean (Research & Graduate Studies) Laverne Jacobs commented on mandatory mask mandates as they relate to accessibility concerns for vulnerable populations. 

Dr. Jacobs said many people with disabilities fear that they'll be asked to share their health history with a stranger every time they enter a store in order to “prove” they fall into an exempted category.

Law deans' letter to the community on anti-Black racism

We condemn the recent, senseless violence leading to the deaths of Black individuals in the United States and Canada. We grieve the loss of George Floyd, Regis Korchinski-Paquet, Ahmaud Arbery and many additional Black lives. Anti-Black racism is pervasive in Canadian society, including in its universities and law schools. We acknowledge that there has been a history of Anti-Black racism at Windsor Law.
