Visiting Scholars

Each year the Centre welcomes feminist scholars from universities across Canada and around the world for visits spanning up to a full academic term. CFLS Visitors become part of a vibrant feminist scholarly community, with more than 20 law faculty members associated with the Centre. CFLS Visitors can stay for a few days or longer, in consultation with the CFLS Director, and will usually give a lecture in our CFLS Lecture Series. We are particularly keen to welcome CFLS Visitors who have collaborative teaching or research projects with CFLS faculty members.

The Susan Boyd and Claire Young CFLS Visiting Scholar Fund is available to provide modest travel subsidies for a few of our faculty visitors each year. Priority in allocating these funds is given to promising early career feminist scholars and those from groups historically under-represented in the legal academy.

Prospective visitors should send expressions of interest to CFLS Director Margot Young at
