Professor Young began her teaching career at the Faculty of Law, University of Victoria in 1992 after doing graduate work at the University of California, Berkeley in the fields of feminist legal theory and reproductive technologies. Her focus quickly shifted to the areas of constitutional law, in particular, equality law and theory, and social welfare law. She has continued to teach and research widely in these areas. Professor Young is very involved in work with a number of non-governmental groups working on issues of women's economic equality and justice. She has authoring alternative reports for the National Association of Women and the Law for the last two of Canada's periodic reviews under the United Nations ICESCR and ICCPR.
