Teaching with the Feminist Judgments Project

Since the publication of Feminist Judgments: From Theory to Practice, both the materials in the book and the underpinning theoretical advances have been used in teaching in a wide variety of ways.

Uses of Feminist Judgments in the classroom

The following links provide examples of powerpoint presentations and seminar plans for using the feminist judgments project in the classroom. These materials were developed with the assistance of a grant from the Centre for Legal Education.  We are very grateful to the CLE and our contributors. We hope to add more materials in the future.

Please use the materials as you think fit, acknowledging the project as appropriate and give us any feedback that you can on student responses.
