Forum on Law Teaching and Learning in the COVID Context

The Canadian Association of Law Teachers is holding two online fora (in “roundtable” format) on law teaching and learning in the COVID context.

The COVID pandemic of 2020 has compelled law faculties to move to online teaching and prompted other major changes, such as modified evaluation schemes. What lessons can law teachers draw from these unprecedented shifts? What further needs are arising, and how should we be trying to meet those needs? What is likely to be the lasting impact? While we lament the circumstances, have we gained any valuable insights or perhaps discovered new approaches that are worth preserving?

The English version will take place on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 from 1PM to 3PM EDST.


Panelists will include:

  • Eric Adams (University of Alberta)
  • Olabisi Akinkugbe (Dalhousie University)
  • Lisa Cirillo (Downtown Legal Services, University of Toronto)
  • Catherine Dauvergne (University of British Columbia)
  • Craig Forcese (University of Ottawa)
  • Sonia Lawrence (Osgoode Hall Law School, York University)
  • Shauna Van Praagh (McGill University)
