The laws surrounding prostitution in Canada have been in contention in recent years. It is an issue with many social and legal dimensions to explore, and ESLSA has the pleasure of inviting an expert from the firm Sack Goldblatt Mitchell LLP, to host a seminar on the changing nature of prostitution in Canada.
Frances Mahon is part of SGM’s criminal law group. She has worked on the Canada v. Bedford case from the beginning, and appeared as a witness for Bill C-36, both of which were important parts of prostitution law’s recent developments.
Frances graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2013. During law school, she worked as a research assistant for Professor Alan Young, and was part of the legal team that successfully challenged three of Canada's prostitution laws before the Supreme Court of Canada.
Frances also took a lead role at the Innocence Project, an organization which investigates claims of wrongful conviction. She is dedicated to advancing the cause of justice, whether in the courtroom or through grassroots advocacy.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from and engage with a leading figure in the development of prostitution law in Canada.
Refreshments will be provided.
This event will be held in the Junior Common Room of Trinity College on Wednesday, February 25, 2015, from 3p - 6p. We hope to see you there!
