Marie Manikis joined the Faculty of Law of McGill University in 2013 and will be teaching Criminal Procedure and Criminal Law in 2013-2014. Her research interests include criminal law, human rights, victims, sentencing and criminal justice.
Professor Manikis’ scholarship has been published in Canadian and British peer-reviewed journals and was presented at several conferences and seminars, including the British Association of Comparative Law, the World Society of Victimology, as well as Canadian, British and American Universities.
In 2010 she completed an MSt in law at the University of Oxford and that same year she undertook a DPhil in law at the University of Oxford under the supervision of Professors Andrew Ashworth and Carolyn Hoyle. Her doctoral research compares and analyses the enforcement and redress mechanisms available in England and Wales and the United States in response to victims’ rights breaches. It was supported by the SSHRC, the FQRSC, the Maple Leaf Trust, the Peter Birks fund and the Modern Law Review.
During her doctoral studies, she taught graduate tutorials in criminal justice at the Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford and was a Visiting Researcher at Harvard Law School. In 2008-2009, she taught tutorials on the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and judicial review at York University. Prior to this, she briefly practiced law in Montreal and clerked for a Superior Court Justice. Finally, Professor Manikis has provided consultation/research services based on her research on victims of crime to the Department of Justice in Canada, the Ministry of Justice in England and Wales and the Canadian Senate.
Professor Manikis is happy to supervise graduate and postdoctoral students working on topics that relate to victims, sentencing, criminal law and criminal justice.
