Kanādas tiesneses Maria T. Linhares de Sousa vieslekcija par Kanādas ģimenes tiesībām.
Augsti godājamā Ontārio provinces Augstākās tiesas tiesnese Maria T. Linhares de Sousa sniedza vieslekciju bakalauru programmas studentiem kursā "Salīdzinošās privātās, ģimenes un mantojuma tiesības".
The subject matter of the lecture was introduction into Canadian family law. The lecture reflected over thirty years of personal experience in adjudication in matrimonial matters, briefly covering all major issues in Canadian family law, be it federal or provincial competence. Canada’s mixed legal system of both common law and civil law jurisdictions offered even more unique perspectives on the topics.
The highly interesting issues that most students encountered in their lives for the first time, as well as the fascinating style in which the lecture was presented resulted in a hot discussion about matrimonial property rights, divorce conditions, comparison of marriage and other types of cohabitation, etc. Nothing can prove the success of the lecture better than the fact that with the discussion and questions that followed, the 45 minute guest event was over 90 minutes when it finally had to come to an end.
