Program Title: 'Eric v. Lola'
Description: Beverley Baines is a Professor in the Faculty of Law at Queen's and cross appointed to the School of Policy Studies and to the Department of Gender Studies in the Faculty of Arts & Science. In the 2012 fall term she taught Public Law and Law Gender Equality; currently she teaches Constitutional Law and, in the School of Policy Studies, Law and Public Policy.
Since acting as an advisor to some women's groups during the drafting of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Professor Baines' research interests have consistently focused on how courts, especially the Canadian Supreme Court, interpret the Charter guarantee of sex equality in women's cases. Recent projects include analyzing cases and legislation restricting faith-based family law arbitrations, criminalizing polygamy, and banning (or failing to reasonably accommodate) the niqab from the perspective of the women who seek constitutional recognition of their intersecting rights to sex equality and religious freedom.
