Sponsorship: Ontario Justice Education Network (OJEN)

Gluckstein Lawyers' sponsorship of High School Law Teacher, Vivian Garofalo, was made possible through OJEN, the Ontario Justice Education Network's Educator Support Department Initiative.

The recipient, Vivian Garofalo, a high school law teacher with the York Region District School Board is well-versed in OJEN's classroom resources and has participated in their professional development workshops over the years.

Garofalo's secondment with OJEN provided her the opportunity to develop two initiatives through OJEN's Educator Support Department;

  1. high school classroom resources;
  2. teacher training webinars.

Garofalo's classroom resources focus on immigration and refugee law, two fields that Garofalo has a passion for. These resources incorporate a variety of learning strategies, including case studies, critical thinking and exploring social, economic and cultural influences; all of which have played a part in determining Canada's immigration and refugee polices.

In addition to her high school classroom resources, Garofalo developed a series of webinars for teacher training; covering topics from criminal, civil and administrative law to international law.
