Allison Christians is Associate Dean (Research) and the H. Heward Stikeman Chair in the Law of Taxation. Her research and teaching focus on national and international tax law and policy issues, with an emphasis on the relationship between taxation and economic development, and on the role of government and non-government institutions and actors in the creation of tax policy norms.
Established in 2000, the Principal’s Prize recognizes excellence in teaching and its importance to the academic experience of students at McGill University. It is presented annually to one recipient in each of four categories: Faculty Lecturer, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor and Full Professor.
“Scores of students have shared how Professor Christians’ energetic and thought-provoking teaching style, combined with her passion for contemporary issues of pressing importance, has left a deep impression on them,” said Dean Robert Leckey. “That our small faculty is receiving one of these prizes for the fourth time testifies to our ongoing commitment to being at the forefront of legal education.”
Please join us in congratulating Professor Christians on this well-deserved recognition!
