The TRC Final Report called for significant change in the Canadian justice system's relationship with Indigenous peoples. These calls to action extended to law societies, lawyers, law schools, and government. How do Indigenous and non-indigenous lawyers practice law or for law impacting Indigenous peoples in the age of reconciliation? Are current laws compatible with the justice and reconciliation called for by the TRC? How did we get to where we are today? This highly interactive seminar draws on the TRC Final Report to critically engage with current legal issues in their social and political context.
