A unique, practical program focused on assessing, balancing and resolving human rights issues, delivered by a highly distinguished faculty of Canada’s leading experts.
Interpreting and applying human rights legislation in the workplace, in the classroom and other settings presents a complex and unique set of challenges. Failure to comply with applicable laws can be very costly indeed, both in terms of time and money spent defending such claims, as well as the consequent reputational damage, should an individual’s claim be upheld by the tribunal.
This comprehensive program was designed to give you the knowledge and practical skills to competently and confidently handle day-to-day challenges, as well as more complex human rights issues. In-class lectures will be supplemented by simulations, case studies and hands-on workshops.
