The Faculty of Law’s David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights is pleased to announce that lawyer Susan Ursel will be the Asper Centre’s Constitutional Litigator-in-Residence for the fall 2018.
Ursel, a Toronto-based employment and human rights lawyer, will be teaching constitutional advocacy in the Asper Centre clinic during the fall term. Drawing upon her extensive experience from her constitutional, human rights and administrative law practice, she will mentor students on the case files that they will be working on in the clinic.
“Susan Ursel’s wealth of litigation experience and work in the human rights field, especially in seeking equality rights, will add an exciting dimension to the clinic this coming term,” says executive director Cheryl Milne.
Susan Ursel says, “I am very much anticipating the exciting and fascinating work with the Asper Centre this year. Constitutional issues and litigation have been a passion of mine for many years and I am honoured to be doing this work with the Asper Centre which is renowned for its constitutional expertise and for its exceptional educational programs. My thanks to the Centre for inviting me to work with them.”
