About the Annie MacDonald Langstaff Workshops
Inaugurated in 1988 in honour of Annie MacDonald Langstaff, BCL '14, the first woman to earn a law degree in Quebec, the workshops provide a forum for academics, judges, lawyers, and community activists to present scholarly research and practical insights on issues relating to women and the law.
About the Patricia Allen Memorial Lecture
Created in 1992 by the Class of 88 in memory of classmate Patricia Allen, a graduate of the Faculty who was senselessly murdered, this annual lectureship is devoted to sensitizing and educating the legal community and others about pressing social and legal issues, particularly that of violence against women.
