DUNCAN WILLIS AND JANELLE KOH
On 29 June 2020, we lost Tilly Houghton.
Tilly was an ex-MLS student, and she was also so much more. She was a passionate activist who pounded the pavement for many causes; disability rights, refugee rights, indigenous rights, LGBTIQ+ rights, and mental health, just to name a few. More than an activist, she was an advocate for the rights of others. She loved the law, and believed deeply in the law’s potential to redress injustices (with a healthy dose of cynicism, of course). Throughout her life, she attempted to address those injustices in innumerable ways. Lucky for us, writing was one of them.
During Tilly’s time at MLS, she was a prolific writer for De Minimis. In memory of Tilly’s contributions to this paper and to the wider law school community, we have published this special edition of her work.
