The Faculty of Law is pleased to announce that Professor Geneviève Saumier, Peter M. Laing, Q.C., Professor of Law, and Professor Ignacio Cofone have been appointed Norton Rose Fulbright Faculty Scholars in International Arbitration and International Commercial Law.
As Norton Rose Fulbright Faculty Scholars, Professors Saumier and Cofone will support a rich program of research activities in international arbitration and commercial law. These awards were made possible thanks to a generous gift from Norton Rose Fulbright Canada, to which nearly 85% of McGill graduates at the firm contributed.
“Professor Saumier and Professor Cofone are both engaged in exciting, timely work in their respective fields and I am delighted to see their work recognized through these awards,” said Dean Robert Leckey. “We are grateful for Norton Rose Fulbright’s continued support in helping ensure the Faculty of Law is a leading institution for teaching and scholarship in arbitration and commercial law.”
