Professor publishes article on domestic violence in Alberta Law Review
Professor Jennifer Koshan has published an article in the Alberta Law Review
"Mapping Domestic Violence Law and Policy in Alberta: Intersections and Access to Justice" analyzes the laws, government policies, and justice system components that apply to domestic violence in Alberta as one step towards enhancing access to justice in this context. It also recommends specific law reform measures, government oversight, and action by the courts and other legal actors to deal with problematic intersections and gaps that compromise access to justice. The focus is on law and policy prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, although significant legal and policy developments related to the pandemic are noted.
