This event will feature short “work in progress” presentations by graduate students (LLM & doctoral level) with commentary from Osgoode professors. The event aims at offering spaces to talk about various challenges (methodological, writing related, substantive) which beset researchers at every stage of their careers. Research and writing oriented communities can help us work through these problems, by pushing our work forward and by opening it to scrutiny and suggestion.
