An alternative orientation guide to law school, compiled by a working group of law students from across Canada following a leadership summit held by NAWL in February 2011 to
train feminist leaders in law school. Aims to provide feminist and equality seeking law students with hope, encouragement and inspiration as well as with some of the tools they may need to survive law school and legal practice. Also aims to encourage feminist students and future lawyers to think critically about the law and take action to denounce inequality and injustice. Consists of manifestos, excerpts of articles and personal accounts written by 25 feminist students, professors, lawyers and activists.
