At Osgoode Hall Law School, workshops and colloquia supplement our traditional lectures, as faculty members, students and legal practitioners come together to engage in open dialogue about current research and emerging legal scholarship.
Osgoode hosts over 60 workshops and colloquia each academic year. Each event consists of students, faculty and other members of the legal community meeting and discussing a paper or presentation by an invited guest.
Unlike in-class learning, these gatherings promote intellectual legal discussions and knowledge exchange with peers, and feature some of the world’s most distinguished legal scholars.
The Law.Arts.Culture Colloquium aims to explore the intersection of Law and the Arts, in an effort to foster a multidisciplinary research community, and promote a humanistic legal education in which students reflect on diverse images of justice, their cultural sources, and the role of law in producing the stories a society tells about itself.
Osgoode Colloquium on Law, Religion & Social Thought
The Osgoode Colloquium on Law, Religion & Social Thought features leading thinkers addressing theoretical and social questions regarding law and religion in contemporary society. The only forum of its kind in Canada, the colloquium is insistently multidisciplinary, drawing on creative and provocative thinkers from a variety of relevant disciplines, including law, political theory, religious studies, philosophy, sociology, and history.
Law Through Film Series
Launched in 2014, the Law Through Film Series aims to showcase the power of film to educate and articulate controversial legal issues. Each semester the series features exceptional films that exhibit excellence in filmmaking and explore a broad spectrum of legal issues, from Immigration to Intellectual Property. Following each screening, there will be an opportunity to discuss the film and its issues with the chair and other attendees.
