McMurtry Fellowship

I am pleased to announce that I have been awarded the McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellowship 2019/20 by Osgoode Hall Law School, in collaboration with the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University. I will be giving guest lectures, mentoring students in the environmental law clinic and continuing my research into the role of municipalities in responding to our climate crisis. The fellowship will bring me to York about one day a week.

This will be the eighth year of the McMurtry Fellowship program. Thank you to Osgoode Hall Law School and to the Faculty of Environmental Studies for this opportunity.
