The Faculty of Law is pleased to announce that Jakub Adamski, BCL/LLB’02, has been appointed as faculty lecturer, effective June 1, 2019.

A course lecturer at the Faculty since 2012, Adamski has taught a number of large-enrolment courses in business law and securities regulation. As faculty lecturer, he succeeds Cristina Toteda, BCL/LLB’13, at the helm of the first-year Integration Weeks and Integration Workshops, as well as the upper-year Advocacy course. He will also teach other courses, including Legal Ethics and Professionalism.

After obtaining his BCL/LLB (with great distinction), Adamski pursued an LLM at Columbia Law School and articled at the Toronto office of Davies Ward Phillips & Vineberg LLP. He has worked as a research fellow for the Faculty of Law and as a policy advisor to the Office of the Associate Provost (Policies & Procedures) of McGill University. Adamski has been an independent legal consultant to leading Canadian law firms and foreign government agencies since 2005 and is an active contributor to legal research.

“We are thrilled Jakub Adamski has taken on this new role at the Faculty,” said Dean Robert Leckey. “His extensive experience in teaching, legal research, and writing position him to contribute significantly to our students’ learning.”
