The FLF is excited to announce our second roundtable of the year, “girls club? Feminism in Law School and in Legal Practice”, facilitated by Dr. Jennifer Schulz.

The roundtable will be held on Monday, October 25th from 12 -1 in room 308. Dr. Schulz has done some fascinating work on women, law, mediation and television, and this promises to be an extremely interesting and engaging roundtable discussion. The title of the roundtable and the suggested reading is based on a short-lived television show about 3 female junior lawyers, called girls club.

Dr. Schulz has suggested a short chapter as reading for the roundtable for attendees looking to get some context.  If you’re looking for some thought provoking reading prior to the roundtable, find it here: Jennifer L. Schulz, “girls club does not Exist”  in M. Asimow, ed., Lawyers in Your Living Room!  Law on Television, (Chicago:  ABA Press, 2009) at 243-251.

Dr. Jennifer L. Schulz is Associate Dean (Research & Graduate Studies) and an Assistant Professor at Robson Hall. Dr. Schulz teaches and researches in the areas of negotiation and mediation, law & film and torts.  Dr. Schulz specialises in dispute resolution.  Previously, Dr. Schulz was an invited research fellow at the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, an adjunct professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Toronto, and the Associate Director of the LL.M. in ADR program at Osgoode Hall Law School.  Dr. Schulz is the recipient of a SSHRC grant, has won a “Professor of the Year” Award, is a practicing mediator, and is currently researching the depiction of conflict resolvers in popular culture media.

We are really looking forward to what promises to be a fascinating discussion and hope to see you all there!
