affiliated faculty include a book on sexual autonomy in Japan and a book

During the past year, many of our regular in-person activities have been
put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This year, we look forward to a
return to normal, as far as possible, and we have recently begun accepting
new visiting scholars from Asian countries. We plan to host several talks
and seminars, including a roundtable discussion on the aftermath of the
COVID-19 pandemic in Asia and another roundtable discussion on cryptocurrency
We would like to thank the legal community for your ongoing support
and interest in our activities, and we are looking forward to continuing to
work with lawyers and legal scholars who have an interest in Asian law.

CENTRE FOR FEMINIST LEGAL STUDIES
By Benae Tutelman† and Professor Régine Tremblay‡
The Centre for Feminist Legal Studies (“CFLS”) was established at the Peter
A. Allard School of Law in 1997. Since then, its purpose has been to enhance
the visibility of feminist legal studies at UBC and to strengthen co-operation
in research, teaching and graduate student supervision between scholars
working within Allard Law and within the broader legal community.
Today, the CFLS is proud to continue to support the work of prominent
feminist scholars and activists in the legal community and to ensure that
feminist and social justice issues remain visible at Allard Law. Through its
connections to the larger feminist community, the CFLS continues to
attract visiting feminist scholars, students and practitioners as a space for
collaborating on research and sharing work.
New Developments at the CFLS
This past year has been a period of transition and celebration for the CFLS.
In September 2021, the CFLS welcomed Professor Régine Tremblay as its
new director. The CFLS sincerely thanks Professor Debra Parkes for her
