Since 2018, all first year students at the University of Windsor Law school have been required to take in intensive Indigenous Legal Traditions course. Then, in the fall of 2019, the Indigenous Legal Orders Institute was launched to promote and assist Indigenous peoples with the revitalization and dissemination of their respective Indigenous legal orders through relationship building, collaboration and re-development using Indigenous and other creative research methods.
In this 60 minute webinar, Dr. Beverly Jacobs, C.M., LL.B., LL.M., PhD, will discuss the tenets of Indigenous knowledge and Indigenous Legal Orders. She will also discuss her work over the past 25 years to restore Indigenous traditions, beliefs and law, the impact of colonial Eurocentric law in Canada and the work of the Indigenous Legal Orders Institute.
Dr. Jacobs is Mohawk Nation of the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois) Confederacy, Bear Clan and practices law part-time in her home community of Six Nations of the Grand River Territory. She is also an Assistant Professor at the Faculty of Law, University of Windsor.
