Congratulations to CALE members Kelly Gallagher-Mackay and Deanne Sowter on being the recipients of this year’s awards! Both of their projects sound very interesting.
The winners for the 2019-20 year are Kelly Gallagher-Mackay of Wilfred Laurier University in the Fellowship in Research category and Deanne Sowter, a Research Fellow at Osgoode Hall Law School, in the Studies category. Prof. Gallagher-Mackay will by studying the experiences of international law graduates in Ontario after receiving Certificates of Qualification from the National Council on Accreditation, to practice law in Ontario. She will be studying the effect of these lawyers and candidates on the internationalization of legal and professional education. Ms. Sowter will be studying the question whether psychological or coercive harm should be included in the professional rules exempting physical violence or harm from duties of confidentiality and solicitor-client privilege. Both projects promise to advance the law’s understanding of emergent and important topics that affect the practice of law in Canada.
