“Professor Weinstock will draw on his successes in scholarly publishing, securing external funding, and disseminating his research broadly in encouraging our colleagues to reach still higher in their research endeavours,” said Dean Robert Leckey. “For her part, Professor Jukier has made extraordinary contributions in her role, especially working with instructors and staff in the Student Affairs Office during the pandemic to provide our students with a stimulating legal education to the highest standard. I extend my gratitude to Professor Christians for her championing of our colleagues’ research.”
