Members of the UVic Law community respond to TRC recommendations

This past June, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (TRC) released its executive summary and recommendations. Since the release of the recommendations, members of the UVic Law community have embraced the recommendations. In a recent post on Slaw, Dean Jeremy Webber, writing on behalf of the Council of Canadian Law Deans, outlines what the recommendations mean for Canadian law schools and outlines some of the promising initiatives at UVic Law that can be built upon to meet the goals of the recommendations. Professors Gillian Calder and Rebecca Johnson also recently reflected on the TRC’s recommendations and what it means for legal education in Canada on the Canadian Lawyer blog.

You can read Dean Webber’s post here and Professors Calder and Johnson’s post here. UVic Law’s response to the TRC’s recommendations is also available online.

The Final Report of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada is available online.
