Alexandra Flynn, Assistant Professor, Peter A. Allard School of Law
Alexandra Flynn's projects are all loosely captured under the field of ‘urban law and governance’. To better understand how cities work and who holds power, she goes beyond case law and legislation (‘law in the books’) to uncover the legal norms and rules that operate in practice. Her academic, policy, and community work reimagine how Canadian cities can be more inclusive and participatory, especially for Indigenous communities and historically marginalized people. She considers myself to be an interdisciplinary legal scholar with deep community ties, and a law reform mandate. She is a frequent contributor to popular media, including CBC, TEDx, and the Globe and Mail.
