CALT.Online Session

Regulation of Lawyers .... and Law Schools? How ongoing debates about lawyer licensing affect law schools and legal education

Friday February 10 @ 1130 PT, 1230 MT, 130 CT, 230 EST, 330 AT (1.5 hours)


Details of panellists to follow.

In this session we aim to ensure that members of the Canadian Academy understand the ways that national and provincial level discussions about Lawyer licensing and entry to the licensing regimes in Canada implicate law schools and legal education directly and indirectly.

From CALT's perspective, law schools - and legal academics - must build positive and productive relationships with provincial regulators and the national Federation of Canadian Law Societies and must engage in debates about the future of licensing of lawyers. In this session we will describe the current landscape, note some areas of concern, illustrate different pressures facing various provinces, and note provincial level changes, and briefly describe what has happened in the UK over the past decade or so (very significant changes) to illustrate the reasons for attention to this matter. We will describe the ways in which this issue is another iteration of the age old trade school/academic subject debate, but will make efforts to argue that this dichotomy is unhelpful in understanding the complexity of today's legal profession and the challenges facing the Bar.

We will also hope for some group discussion on how to engage in positive ways with the local bar and regulators, and how we might ensure that this issue is appropriately on the table within our own law schools.

CALT's latest letter to the Federation is here. Membership feedback is very welcome: [email protected].

Welcome to the Canadian Legal Academy: Assistant Professors Irina Cerić and Vincent Wong (Windsor Law)

There are in fact four new professors at UWindsor Law since July 2022, but we will have to wait a bit longer to properly feature Mary Anne Vallianatos @MaryAnneV and Daniel Del Gobbo @danieldelgobbo (both will have their biographies up in 2023).

For now, a big welcome to new Assistant Professors Irina Ceric and Vincent Wong.


Irina Ceric

Irina Ceric (she/her) @irinaceric joined the Faculty of Law as an Assistant Professor in July of 2022. Prof. Ceric holds a PhD from Osgoode Hall Law School and comes to Windsor Law with a wealth of teaching, practice, and community experience. She is called to the Bars of British Columbia, Ontario, and New York.

Prof. Ceric’s core research interests lie in the intersection of law and social movements, with a particular focus on the regulation and criminalization of dissent by movements for social and environmental justice and Indigenous sovereignty. She has written extensively about the use of injunctions and contempt of court, a research interest that arose out of her work as a lawyer and legal support organizer. Prof. Ceric is currently at work on a book, based on her doctoral research, tracing the history and politics of the movement defence in Canada and the US since the late 1990s. Her research employs activist-scholar methodologies and draws on scholarly literature from both law scholarship and related disciplines, including law and society, social movement studies, clinical legal education, and abolitionism.

Prof. Ceric teaches Property Law and Access to Justice and her publications are available at

Vincent Wong

Vincent Wong @initialvw joined the University of Windsor Faculty of Law as an Assistant Professor in 2022. He is also a PhD Candidate at Osgoode Hall Law School, where his dissertation focuses on racial capitalism and the processes that produce and structure unfree status-excluded labour in Canada. He serves on the board of the Community Justice Collective (Tkaronto). Vincent holds a Bachelor of Commerce and Juris Doctor from the University of Toronto and a Master of Laws from Columbia Law School, where he was a Human Rights Fellow and James Kent Scholar.

Professor Wong’s research focuses in law and political economy – specifically at the nexus between migration, race, markets, and the law. He is particularly interested in how a Canadian context-specific critical race theory (CRT) can better inform and be informed by the practice of anti-racist and intersectional movement lawyering. Professor Wong is also interested in what critical frameworks of law and political economy have to offer in the context of understanding the emerging hub of the 21st century global economic order: China.

Prior to academia, Professor Wong worked as a Staff Lawyer at the Chinese and Southeast Asian Legal Clinic and Secretary of the Chinese Canadian National Council - Toronto Chapter. He has also previously held positions at the International Human Rights Program at the University of Toronto and the African American Policy Forum.
