This year's Social Justice Law Conference builds on the commitments made at previous conferences to develop and support access to justice in BC and to enhance the specialized skills that lawyers, legal advocates, and law students need for practicing in social justice fields of law. This day long conference provides an excellent opportunity for networking, professional development, and discussing current issues.

The focus this year is on what lawyers and advocates can do to affect change in systems. We are delighted to have  Kasari Govender, Human Rights Commissioner of BC,  give our keynote address to kick things off and provide an overview of the vision of the newly reinstated Commission.

Panel topics include: an inter-sectional approach to the climate crisis; issues arising from the expansion of artificial intelligence (AI) into the realm of judicial, tribunal and government decision-making; Trans Rights and A2J barriers; and effective strategies for collaboration among lawyers and legal advocacy groups in changing systems to increase gender equality and refugee rights.
