Canadian Civil Liberties Association rights education roadshow comes to UVic Law

On November 10, 2022. the Faculty of Law at the University of Victoria (UVic) and the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) are jointly hosting a one-day conference in UVic Law’s Fraser building focussed on equity, diversity, inclusion and civil rights in the legal profession. The event is part of the CCLA’s nationwide rights education roadshow. High school and post-secondary students, as well as educators, are welcome to attend in the hopes of encouraging people who can bring more diversity to the legal profession to consider pursuing higher education and a career in law.

Students will have a chance to critically examine important rights issues from multiple perspectives as they engage directly with legal and Charter experts who are working to make positive social change and challenging systemic barriers across the country.

 There is no cost for this event and lunch is provided for all registrants. Please register online in advance.
