Janine Benedet

Janine Benedet joined the law school at University of British Columbia (UBC) as an Associate Professor in 2005. This appointment represented a return not only to her alma mater but also to the city that she has always considered home. Her first stop after receiving her LL.B. was a clerkship with fellow UBC alumnus Justice Frank Iacobucci at the Supreme Court of Canada. That was followed by graduate studies, leading to both an LL.M. and an S.J.D., at the University of Michigan, where she also taught as a Visiting Faculty Fellow. Janine practiced labour law in Toronto from 1997 to 1999, and was a faculty member at Osgoode Hall Law School from 1999 to 2005. She is a member of the Bar in both Ontario and British Columbia.

Janine's areas of teaching expertise include criminal law, labour law, administrative law, professional responsibility, and anti-discrimination law. Her current research focuses on sexual violence against women, including prostitution, pornography, and sexual assault.
