Decolonizing Law School


  • Roderick A. Macdonald
  • Thomas B. McMorrow



This article provides an examination of the future of law school in Canada through the framework of colonization and decolonization. The authors identify five interconnected forms of contemporary colonization in law school, namely intellectual, professional, market, consumerist, and herd colonization, all of which are impacted by the catalyst of technology. The process of decolonizing law school identified by the authors is fundamentally a process of moving the role of human agency to the foreground in designing, building, and renovating institutional orders that foster human flourishing.
