Brian Pel has been honoured as the first Toronto recipient of one of the Faculty of Law's most prestigious awards - the James A. Robb Award – for his exemplary volunteer service to the Faculty of Law at McGill.
The Faculty of Law is pleased to report that Julien Fouret, LLM’03, recently published “Recueil des Commentaires des Décisions du CIRDI (2002-2007)” in Édition Bruylant’s Droit et Mondialisation Collection, a collection supervised by the newly-appointed Oppenheimer Chair in International Law, Professor François Crépeau.

McGill’s Faculty of Law has received more than $4.7-million in philanthropic gifts since the beginning of September, just as the University entered the 2nd year of its historic Campaign McGill. That means the Faculty has raised more than $17-million since McGill launched its largest-ever fundraising drive in October 2007 – nearly half-way toward its goal of $35,130,000.
Before serving on the Supreme Court of Canada, Gerald Le Dain was a much-beloved McGill law professor who believed that legal education and its students should be tended to most carefully. In a homage to this respected teacher, the Class of ’58 has joined Justice Le Dain’s family to establish a fund in constitutional and administrative law.
Bryan Haynes was raised in British Columbia, but that didn’t stop him from moving to Montreal as a law student, and immersing himself completely in the city’s rich mix of French and English cultures. Now this Calgary-based lawyer is giving other Western Canadians the chance to help forge the frontier of civil law in Canada at McGill’s Faculty of Law.
