Class of 2008-2009

Bethany Hastie is an Assistant Professor at the Peter A. Allard School of Law. Hastie first joined the Allard community as a law student, graduating alongside the class of 2009. Following her JD studies, Hastie received her LLM from McGill University at the Institute of Comparative Law. Hastie also completed her DCL at McGill University where she held both a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) Doctoral Fellowship and an O’Brien Fellowship in Human Rights and Legal Pluralism. She joined the Law Faculty as a Lecturer in 2015.

During her time at law school, Hastie worked alongside Benjamin Perrin through Perrin’s Human Trafficking Group. Inspired by the experience, Hastie began to volunteer at the BC Human Trafficking Office. She continued to explore the issues and intricacies surrounding human trafficking in her graduate work.

Hastie’s current research looks at the intersection between labour, migration, and human rights. She has published extensively in law journals and edited collections on this diverse research area. Some of these texts explore such issues as legal accessibility for migrant workers and the relationship between human rights and precarious workplaces. Hastie also regularly contributes to online journals and blogs, thereby exemplifying her commitment to active scholarship and legal research.
