This initiative has allowed us to begin what needs to be an ongoing process and collaboration to integrate teaching about violence against women into law school curriculum. We see the following as important next steps to ensure the work done in this initiative can move forward:

1. Circulate the report to the following organizations:

  • Ontario Women’s Directorate
  • Ontario law deans
  • Law Society of Upper Canada
  • Ontario Bar Association
  • Law Foundation of Ontario

2. Consider ways in which the materials can be used as the basis for similar modules in other disciplines.

3. Pursue further initiatives with OWD or other possible funders, including the following:

  • Development of workshops to assist professors in teaching about violence against women
  • Development of expanded curriculum
  • Development of teaching resources for professors, and
  • Development of learning resources, strategies and opportunities for students.
