University lecture examines regulating sexually-oriented business

Media Advisory Release Date: October 20, 2014 10:15 a.m.

Members of the media are invited to attend the 2014 Law Foundation of Saskatchewan lecture featuring Dr. Mariana Valverde, FRSC, Centre for Criminology and Sociolegal Studies at the University of Toronto.

In her lecture entitled Beyond the Criminal Law: what local and provincial authorities can do to regulate sexually-oriented business, Dr. Valverde will review existing laws and policies, focusing mainly on the common-law jurisdictions of Australia and New Zealand, as well as Canadian municipal business licensing schemes. She will discuss how Canada — and especially its provinces, territories, and municipalities — is in an excellent position to benefit from what has been learned from the over ten years of regulatory experiences in other countries.  

The free public lecture will be held on:

Thursday, October 23, 2014
5:00 p.m.

Luther Auditorium on the University of Regina main campus
University of Regina, 3737 Wascana Parkway
(Note: Free parking in Lots 3M and 17)
