Lawyering Using an Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression Lens is a non-credit, co-curricular program designed to critically engage Osgoode Hall Law School students on topics including anti-Black racism, racial profiling, access to justice, microaggressions, intersectionality, systemic oppression, resilience, self-care and advocacy using anti-racism and anti-oppression strategies.
In an interactive group setting students will:
- Develop strategies to integrate anti-racism, anti-oppression and inclusive practices into their personal legal journeys;
- Integrate creative tools to imagine or reimagine ways to address anti-Black racism and integrate anti-racism, anti-oppression and inclusive practices into their personal legal journeys;
- Gain a deeper understanding of the barriers faced by Black law students and legal practitioners;
- Create opportunities to situate their lived experiences and share their accumulated knowledge on topics related to anti-racism, anti-oppression, exclusion and strategies for change with their colleagues; and
- Learn practical skills for self-care, self-awareness and self-advocacy as law students.
Students who attend at least 7 out of 8 sessions, complete a personal learning journal and participate in a group project will receive a certificate of completion.
The Program will be offered from January 22, 2020 to March 17, 2020 (excluding reading week) on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:30.
