How Far Can a Law School Dean Go?

How Far Can a Law School Dean Go?

Dean Lorne Sossin

This week Julie talks to Lorne Sossin, Dean of Osgoode Hall Law School at York University, about, among other things, his thoughts on former Justice Robin Camp (the “knees together” judge), his philosophy of what it means to be a law school dean, and how student lawyers can be oriented to the lived realities of their future clients. Plus: the success of SRL Awareness Day, a case to watch on disability accommodation in the North West Territories, and a fresh look at practical legal services from Windsor Prof Noel Semple.
