It is time to congratulate Susan Boyd, holder of UBC Law’s Chair in Feminist Legal Studies and Director of UBC Law’s Centre for Feminist Legal Studies on completing her “last class”, as astonishing as that might seem. Those who do not know Susan still have the chance as she is not retiring just yet, and of course, you can get to know Susan through her work (ssrn here), and through the many legal scholars and lawyers who benefited from her mentorship.
And, it is time to welcome to the academy [note that I’m only listing NEW hires or lateral hires from outside the Cdn legal academy here, not laterals within Canada, and only where I can find official announcements – i will try to update as these come in]
