Biography
Professor Jasminka Kalajdzic joined the University of Windsor Faculty of Law in 2009 after twelve years in private practice as a civil litigator. Her current research focuses on three areas: access to justice; class actions; and legal ethics.

She has presented her research at Law and Society Association conferences, the annual Osgoode Symposium on Class Actions and for the National Judicial Institute. Most recently, she presented at a roundtable on the globalization of civil litigation held at Stanford University in April 2019, and at the annual Public and Private Justice conference in Dubrovnik (May 2019).

Professor Kalajdzic is the author of two books on class actions: The Law of Class Actions in Canada (Canada Law Book, 2014), a text co-authored with the Honourable Warren K. Winkler, Justice Paul Perell, and Alison Warner; and Class Actions in Canada: The Promise and Reality of Access to Justice (UBC Press, 2018). She has published numerous book chapters and peer-reviewed journal articles. She was the co-lead researcher for the Law Commission of Ontario’s Class Action Project, and co-authored its final report (July 2019).
