    On Friday, March 26, 2010, the Windsor Law will host the 3rd Annual Civil Liberties Student Symposium. This day-long event -- a forum for students to present civil liberties research and to discuss and debate current civil liberties issues -- will feature Ms. Nathalie Des Rosiers, General Counsel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association -- as the lunchtime keynote speaker. Windsor Law faculty, librarians, students and staff are invited. A light lunch will be served. Please RSVP by March 24 to shiu@uwindsor.ca. For more information, please contact Professor Jacobs at ljacobs@uwindsor.ca.

    The Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) -Windsor Law Partnership was established in the fall of 2009, through a Pro Bono Students Canada project . The CCLA-Windsor Law group monitors civil liberties issues in the media, at human rights tribunals, in the courts, and in Canadian legislatures. It also works with other law students across Canada to monitor issues, share ideas for research and activism, and contribute to the CCLA Rights Watch Blog. (www.ccla.org/rightswatch)

    The Windsor Law group consists of Yannick Katirai and Melissa Knox (Law II), and Jonathan Dickins, Jesse Kendall and Sara Nagalingam (Law I). Under the guidance of Professor Laverne Jacobs, the CCLA-Windsor group meets regularly to discuss current civil liberties issues. In January, Sara and Jonathan attended the CCLA Rights Watch Conference in Toronto. The two-day conference, hosted by the CCLA, brought together law students from across Canada and a distinguished list of speakers that included Alan Borovoy, General Counsel Emeritus for the CCLA, Nathalie Des Rosiers, General Counsel for CCLA, Andrew Lokan, specialist in constitutional litigation, and Paul Schabas, specialist in defamation, who gave participants a useful list of “dos and don’ts” for blogging.
