The Chair in Feminist Legal Studies

The Chair in Feminist Legal Studies is the first of its kind in Canada. It was established in 1992 to reinforce and strengthen the existing base of feminist legal studies in the law school by expanding research and teaching in the field at both the graduate and bachelor's degree levels. The Chair also raises public awareness of women's issues at the University of British Columbia (UBC)  and in the broader community through the development of a feminist understanding of day-to-day legal issues. It was made possible through generous donations from the legal and wider communities and the Province of British Columbia as part of UBC's "World of Opportunity" Campaign. Professor Susan Boyd is the first incumbent of the Chair.
