Intimate Partner Violence and Access to Justice

November 24th, 12:00pm to 12:45pm

Many survivors of intimate partner violence, especially when they leave or attempt to leave an abusive relationship, must navigate two or more legal domains -- among them family, criminal, child welfare, and immigration law.
While there is a sizeable body of Canadian research on access to justice challenges in each of these areas of law, this talk highlights the unique and complex challenges that arise for survivors when two or more of these
lega ldomains are engaged and the reality that this engagement is often triggered by abusive partners as a means to coerce, control, and harm their (former) intimate partners.

The Scholars’ Hub @ Home speaker series features discussions on a broad range of topics, with engaging lectures from some of York’s best minds.
