The Faculty is delighted to welcome three new members of the Law community this fall: Professor Sébastien Jodoin, Anne-Sophie Hulin and Justice Louise Provost.

In the coming year, Professor Jodoin will teach courses on sustainable development law and judicial review. .
Professor Jodoin holds a master’s degree in international relations from the University of Cambridge, a master’s in law from the London School of Economics, and a BCL/LLB from McGill.
