Bethany Hastie is an Assistant Professor at the Peter A Allard School of Law, University of British Columbia. She initially joined Allard Law as a Lecturer in 2015, after completing her doctorate at McGill University. During her doctoral studies, she held a SSHRC Canada Doctoral Fellowship and an O'Brien Fellowship in Human Rights and Legal Pluralism, and was a member of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism and Institute of Comparative Law.
Professor Hastie's research examines issues attending precarious labour in the intersecting spaces of labour and employment, migration, and human rights law. Her work has explored these issues in relation to migrant labour, domestic work, labour exploitation, gender and work, and employment discrimination. Her scholarship has been published in legal and interdisciplinary journals and edited collections, and has been presented at several conferences and workshops. Her work has also led to engagement in policy and advocacy projects with a variety of organizations in Canada and internationally.
Professor Hastie is happy to supervise graduate students working on topics germane to labour and employment law, transnational labour law, domestic and international human rights law, feminist legal studies, access to justice, legal education, and comparative law and legal pluralism.
