L'origine d'une expertise : entretien avec Me Sophie Gagnon

In this podcast, Me Justine Fortin welcomes Sophie Gagnon, lawyer and Executive Director of Juripop. They discuss the presence of lawyers in issues of sexual and domestic violence and, more importantly, how legal information is one of the central needs of victims and survivors. Together, they recall a small part of Juripop’s organizational history, the genesis of the expertise that the organization has been developing for several years now.

 

INTERACTIONS AVEC LES PERSONNES VICTIMES DE VIOLENCES CONJUGALES ET POST-SÉPARATION : S'ADAPTER POUR MIEUX ACCOMPAGNER

In this podcast, Me Justine Fortin, director of the conjugal and sexual violence programs at Juripop, welcomes her colleagues Me Éliane Malo and Constance Laurin. Together, they deconstruct the preconceived idea of the role of the lawyer to adapt it to a specific practice for victims. Throughout their conversation, they offer concrete avenues that will allow professionals to adapt their interactions with the people they represent. The goal is not to drastically change the way they work, but to encourage lawyers to make small changes that will have a considerable impact and facilitate the lives of the people they help.

LE SENS DES MOTS : VALIDATION ET RECONNAISSANCE DES VIOLENCES PAR LE VOCABULAIRE

In this podcast, Me Justine Fortin and her guests propose a deconstruction of the meaning of words: those to be preferred, but especially those to be avoided. When the right words are used, they validate the experiences of victims and survivors while helping to recognize the violence and its consequences. Changing one’s vocabulary allows one to put the reality of victims and survivors of domestic and sexual violence at the heart of one’s practice and at the heart of the system. To talk about this, Constance Laurin, clinical specialist in conjugal violence at Juripop and Sandrine Ricci, doctoral researcher in sociology and feminist studies, affiliated with the Research Chair on gender-based and sexual violence in higher education (UQAM).

Témoignage : Me Roxane Charpentier

In this podcast, Me Justine Fortin welcomes her colleague Me Roxane Charpentier who shares with us a testimony full of honesty and resilience about her experience in practicing law with victims of domestic violence and post-separation violence. Together, they talk about practicing law with victims, about the fact that it is sometimes a choice, a passion, a vocation, but that often a lawyer can find himself or herself with cases of this type by force of circumstance. In all cases, it will be necessary to unlearn and relearn to work differently. What we want to share through this testimony is that, if you recognize yourself in this conversation, you are not alone.

JURI RDV
