Professor awarded SSHRC Insight Grant
Professor Jennifer Koshan is the lead on a team of five researchers who were awarded a SSHRC Insight grant of just under $175,000 over three years to study access to justice in domestic violence cases at the intersection of multiple legal systems. Co-investigators are Wendy Chan (Sociology, Simon Fraser University), Michaela Keet and Wanda Wiegers (Law, University of Saskatchewan) and Janet Mosher (Osgoode Hall Law School). Research commenced this summer on phase 1 of the project, which is mapping domestic violence laws and policies across Canada. Jennifer worked with third-year law student Irene Oh on this mapping research, and Irene will continue to work on the project this fall to undertake case law research on domestic violence and access to justice.
