Event Description

Full Description:
In celebration of International Women's Day, the Australian Legal Philosophy Students' Association (ALPSA) is hosting a feminist jurisprudence seminar in Room W332 (Building #1). We will hear from Professor Heather Douglas and Dr Francesca Bartlett on the topic of the Australian Feminist Judgments Project, followed by refreshments in the Atrium. Join us as we acknowledge the role of women in legal philosophy at the TC Beirne School of Law. Everyone welcome. Many thanks to the UQ Student Employability Centre for their generous sponsorship of this event.

The Australian Feminist Judgments Project is an inspired and innovative research project which investigates the possibilities, limits and implications of a feminist approach to legal decision-making. The project involves a group of feminist academics, lawyers and activists who have agreed to write alternative judgments in a series of Australian legal cases. By re-writing and re-imagining original legal decisions through a feminist lens, the project employs praxis—the application of theoretical insights to real world situations—to investigate the influence of feminist theory on judicial decision-making.
