CFLS Lecture Series

The weekly CFLS Lecture Series was started in 1997 to bring feminist legal scholars and lawyers from across Canada and abroad to UBC to share their research and insights with our community. Recent lectures have addressed topics from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls to pay equity, the gendered impacts of mental health detention, and the politics of Black queer liberation. CFLS lectures are open to the University and wider community, so please join us!
