Questions and Assignments

  1. What are some of the key feminist law reform issues currently being advocated for at the federal level? Are any of the reforms being sought driven by coalitions?

  2. What kinds of decision-making structures might work for coalitions?
  3. Given your own background, training, skills, strengths, barriers and privileges what role could you play in a feminist coalition?

  4. How might accountability operate differently in the context of coalition work as opposed to when working as one lawyer with one client? Should it operate differently? What about if you work with/for a non-profit organization or the public service?
