On March 11, 2011, Windsor Law School will be hosting LEAP's first conference -- Accessing Justice and Accountability in Policing. The conference is designed to explore and assess the various mechanisms to enhance access to justice in policing. These mechanisms include data collection, Charter and civil litigation, human rights collaborations, listening to voices at the margins and law school clinics.
The conference is free to attend and open to everyone. If you would like to attend, please register here.
A podcast of the conference will be available on the LEAP website for those who cannot attend.
There is an essay contest open to all law students in Canada. There is a $1,000 prize and possible publication in the conference book. For more information, click here.
In preparation for the conference, LEAP students have prepared a bibliography of academic articles related to the topics of the conference. To access the bibliography, click here.
Over the next few weeks, LEAP students will be posting pieces on the LEAP Blog relevant to the conference.
