Disability and Law Student Colloquium
Join the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism (CHRLP)’s Disability and Law Student Colloquium being held at McGill’s Faculty of Law. The event will take place in a hybrid format in person and on Zoom via the link below. Lunch and snacks will be served. Please note that in-person seating is limited (55 seats available) so please complete this form by March 10, 2023 to confirm your spot.
The event is inspired by the 15th anniversary of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and part of the Disability and Law Initiative building on work that started in 2012. This event looks back at the last decade and a half with a critical and analytical lens. We ask: What advances have been made? What are some of the lessons learnt? What should we draw from experiences of disability policy, accessibility implementation, and social advocacy moving forward? In 6 minute presentations, students and recent graduates will share their work on disability and law, policy, accessibility and social advocacy amongst other topics.
