    Call for Proposals 

    CALT annual conference 2021

    7-11 June, 2021

    Virtually Hosted by:

     Schulich School of Law, Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia

     

    We are pleased to release this Call for Proposals for the 2021 annual conference of the Canadian Association of Law Teachers (CALT).   The conference will be held in a virtual online format throughout the week of 7 to 11 June (which is the week following the virtual gathering of the Congress of the Social Sciences and Humanities). 

    The virtual platform for the conference will be provided by the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia.  We gratefully acknowledge their participation and support.

    Subject to the level of response to the Call for Proposals, and logistical factors, our tentative plan is to schedule 6 plenary sessions over the course of the week, with no more than two sessions of up to two hours duration on any one day. 

    The general focus of the conference will remain on legal education and pedagogy.  We primarily invite proposals on two specific themes:

    1. “Building Back Better: Lessons from Adapting to Teaching in the Pandemic”;
    2. “Bridging Divides: Confronting Colonialism & Anti-Black Racism” – the theme of the cancelled 2020 conference.

    We will also consider proposals that address non-theme topics and issues of current interest in legal education and law, but preference may be given to theme-related proposals and proposals that address teaching and learning.

    CALT Statement in Support of BCSA

    CALT Statement in Support of the Black Canadian Studies Association (BCSA) and Against Racial Profiling and All Forms of Anti-Black Racism

    We, the Canadian Association of Law Teachers (CALT), express our full support for the Black Canadian Studies Association (BCSA) statement, issued on June 4, denouncing an incident of racial profiling and anti-Black racism against a Black graduate student member of BCSA during Congress 2019 at UBC.

    As an association with many members engaged in equality and anti-discrimination research, education and advocacy on a daily basis, we condemn all forms of racial profiling, anti-Black racism and discrimination. We are deeply concerned about the apparent failure of Congress/Federation of Social Sciences and Humanities (FSSH) to appropriately respond to this incident. We should note that we are aware of numerous other incidents in which Black people and other racialized people are assumed not to belong in academic spaces, and are accused of theft. Despite the unfortunate regularity of such occurrences, this is an issue of extreme importance that calls for urgent action. We support the demands set out in the BCSA statement, which we reproduce below. We urge the FSSH to immediately address the BCSA demands and to give the highest priority to implementing measures to support and promote racial equality and inclusion at Congress that engages academic attendees, Congress staff and local partners, vendors and service providers.

    1. The Federation immediately issue a public response acknowledging this incident, asserting zero tolerance for racial profiling and all forms of anti-Black racism, and a commitment to work with the BCSA to ensure that Congress is a welcoming space and experience for our members;
    2. Ensure delivery to the two accusers involved, a letter that will be prepared by the BCSA in response to this incident;
    3. The mention of anti-Black racism be added to the theme of Congress 2020: Bridging Divides (for example, Bridging Divides and Confronting Anti-Black Racism);
    4. If the BCSA remains a member association of the Federation, the waiving of the association’s fees for Congress 2020.
