Parliamentary Restaurant, Centre Block, Ottawa, Ontario

After a year that has featured dramatic sexual assault trials, including that of former CBC host Jian Ghomeshi, what are the issues that continue to plague the justice system in relation to sexualized violence? Join two legal experts as they explore this complex question, which touches on the presumption of innocence, the role of the courts, law enforcement and lawyers, and the cultural context of sexualized violence. How do we move forward and what must we do to ensure justice for all?

2007 Trudeau scholar and Associate Professor at Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University Elaine Craig will try to answer that questions with Carissima Mathen, constitutional and criminal law expert and Associate Professor of Law at the University of Ottawa. This Big Thinking lecture is organized by the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences and will take place on November 29, 2016 at 7:30 am - 8:45 am at the Parliamentary Restaurant, Centre Block in Ottawa.
