The Canadian Association of Law Teachers regrets to announce that it has decided to cancel its conference, previously scheduled for June 1 to 3, 2020 at Western University. We have also decided that we will not participate in the proposed online version of the Congress 2020 meeting. For a variety of reasons, including solidarity with the position of the Black Canadian Studies Association, we do not think it is in the interests of CALT to proceed with an online version.
We have not reached this decision lightly and we regret the disappointment and inconvenience that it may cause.
For anyone who has already registered for the conference, a full refund is available. You can find information about the process for cancellation in the email you received (from Congress) as confirmation of your registration.
We are tentatively planning to hold an online CALT AGM on Wednesday, June 3, 2020, and are exploring the possibility of combining that meeting with an online roundtable gathering to exchange information, experiences and reflections on how law teachers and their institutions have managed the impact of the pandemic crisis. Please save that date and stay tuned.
