Widening the Lens: Stories from Canadian Trans Rights Jurisprudence

From family law to human rights cases, healthcare coverage appeals to social benefit claims, trans people have a long history in Canadian jurisprudence of advocating to improve their lives. While the legal principles that emerge from these cases are cited in legal advocacy and scholarship, the stories of trans people within the case law are less known. This talk forefronts some of those stories. It highlights the decades of work by trans people within trans jurisprudence and considers how the narratives of trans people’s lived experiences are presented within legal advocacy.

Professor Samuel Singer is a long-time advocate for trans people. In 2017, he completed a comprehensive report for the Canadian Human Rights Commission on the development of trans rights in Canada. Samuel founded the Trans Legal Clinic in Montreal in 2014 and served as its supervising lawyer. Before his legal studies, Samuel worked for ASTT(e)Q, a Quebec trans health and advocacy project. Samuel also has a passion for all aspects of tax law and policy. His tax research focuses on tax dispute resolution, the policy rationales underlying tax measures, and the regulation of charities and charitable giving.

Tuesday, February 12 @ 12:30-1:30pm in Room 122, Allard Hall, UBC. All welcome.
