The Centre for Feminist Legal Studies

In 1997, the Centre for Feminist Legal Studies (CFLS) was established with Professor Susan B. Boyd as its Director. The purpose of the CFLS is to enhance the visibility of feminist legal studies at the University of British Columbia (UBC) and to strengthen cooperation in research, teaching, and graduate student supervision between scholars working within the Faculty and elsewhere at UBC, as well as links and collaborations between scholars working in different university and community settings in British Columbia, Canada, and internationally.

The CFLS provides opportunities for students, scholars and the wider feminist legal community to come together, build networks, collaborate on research and exchange ideas. The work of the CFLS has been significant in ensuring that feminist and social justice issues remain visible at the Allard School of Law, and that the law school remains connected to the larger community.
