Artist in Residence

This bold and innovative program brings together artistic creativity with the exploration of justice and the law. Annually, Osgoode brings in an artist or artists, from any discipline, to work on projects focused on interpreting legal history, examining law’s realities today, and imagining law’s future, whether in Canada or elsewhere in the world.  Read more.

FILM Fellowship

The Fellowship is supported by the Fund for Innovation in Law and Media (FILM), an endowment created with a generous donation by Kathryn Podrebarac ’92.  The purpose of FILM  is to fund experiential education programs focused on the use of visual advocacy to address social justice issues, educate the public about the law and legal process, and enhance the practice of dispute resolution.  The intent of FILM is to bring together experts from a variety of disciplines – from filmmakers and editors to lawyers and jurists – and will also provide key roles for Osgoode students in the development and delivery of its projects.

Expressions of interest should be emailed to lawdean@osgoode.yorku.ca.
