The Marlee Kline Social Justice Lecture honours the memory of Marlee Gayle Kline. This lectureship not only recognizes Marlee’s rich contribution to the law school community but also reflects her belief in the central role social justice concerns must play in legal education and law.


The lecture takes place annually and the CFLS welcomes all community members to attend. Information about this year’s lecture will be posted on our blog, facebook and twitter. Click here for a complete list of previous lecturers and topics.
