Speaker: Professor Shauna van Praagh
Series: The Dean’s Lecture Series
The Dean of The City Law School, Professor Carl Stychin, is pleased to host a lecture by the distinguished academic, Professor Shauna Van Praagh of the Faculty of Law, McGill University. Professor Van Praagh will be speaking on "Normative Site, Narrative Insight: The Intergenerational Shaping of Legal Education One Person at a Time."
Professor Van Praagh is Full Professor at McGill University in Montreal, where she has taught and researched since 1993. She served as Associate Dean (Graduate Studies) from 2007-2010. Professor Van Praagh’s substantive areas of research and expertise are primarily children and law, religion and law, legal education and the private law of civil wrongs. Within each area, she adopts a methodological approach grounded in legal pluralism, a sensibility to identity-based narrative and critique, and a particular emphasis on literary sources and style. She recently co-edited, with McGill colleague Helge Dedek, a book collection (Stateless Law: Evolving Boundaries of a Discipline, 2015) in which her own chapter focuses on teaching, learning, and responding to the legacy of Residential Schools for Canada’s aboriginal children.
Professor Van Praagh is a past president (2013-2014) of the Canadian Association of Law Teachers. She clerked for The Right Honourable Brian Dickson, Chief Justice of Canada, from 1989 to 1990. She holds a B. Sc. (with High Distinction) (1986) and an LL.B. (with Honours) (1989) from the University of Toronto, and an LL.M. (1992) and J.S.D. (2000) from Columbia University. Her doctoral dissertation was entitled “Follow the Children: Identity, Integrity, Learning and Law”.
