Announcements and Events
NAWL is excited to announce that it has received funding from the McLean Foundation to study the feasibility of developing and implementing applied feminist curriculum in a Canadian law school using a clinic model. The study will include a needs assessment, taking into consideration the underserved legal needs of marginalized women. Watch the NAWL website for updates on this project.
In 2009, the Trustees of the National Association of Women and the Law Charitable Trust for Research and Education announced the first recipients of NAWL’s policy research grants project. Four grants were provided to support the work of feminist researchers to prepare educational papers on legal issues that affect women, whose interests are often excluded from public policy discussions.
Participate in this international conference on July 3-7, 2011 in Ottawa and Gatineau. The theme is “Inclusions, Exclusions and Seclusions: Living in a Globalized World.” Does globalization include, exclude, and/or seclude women? As global hierarchies realign, how are gender roles and identities evolving? How are social identifications like power, privilege, citizenship, and nation affected?
