In this special episode of the Scarlet Letter, Becky Batagol and Kate Seear travel to Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto, Canada, to speak with Professor Sonia Lawrence. Professor Lawrence is the Director at the Institute for Feminist Legal Studies, as well as the Graduate Program Director at Osgoode. Her research interests include Public Law, Gender, Race, Critical Race Feminism, Feminism and Equality Law.
The discussion traverses a wide breadth of topics, including the need for both racial and gender diversity in law and academia, and particularly on the bench, as well as the events that precipitated the founding of the Institute for Feminist Legal Studies at Osgoode.
