Due to the impossibility of holding an in-person conference, CALT pivoted in the spring of 2020 to organizing online events. CALT is now soliciting proposals from Canadian law teachers for additional webinars or online events on topics related to legal education. These events will be part of a CALT webinar series, to run through the summer and fall of 2020 and possibly into the 2021 calendar year.Read more
1) CALT Prize for Academic Excellence
This year’s winner is Prof. Janine Benedet (University of British Columbia).
Prof. Benedet’s career has demonstrated excellence in multiple ways. Her research has been prolific, courageous, feminist and rooted in her activism. She has shown a consistent willingness to engage in legal education with the judiciary, the public, and especially with her students. She brings her expertise to law reform, litigation and policy-making in multiple fora. With feminism as a consistent thread Prof. Benedet has demonstrated excellence across legal subdisciplines including criminal law, and labour and employment.
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.
