We are working on the website today. Please excuse any mess. (Aug 29, 2022)
I am an assistant professor at Bora Laskin Faculty of Law, where my research and teaching focus on elder law, criminal law, human rights law and alternate dispute resolution.
My academic research explores how laws address social and legal issues relevant to older adults. My current research examines legal issues that arise in the context of elder abuse and legal issues that arise in the criminal and civil context when an older adult has dementia.
I developed my research and teaching interests during a lengthy professional career, including work as a mediator in private practice and as a lawyer in the social justice sector. One relevant accomplishment during my professional career was founding the first legal aid clinic for older adults in western Canada (province-wide service).
