Janet MinorThe Faculty of Law’s David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights is pleased to announce that alumna Janet Minor, past treasurer of the Law Society of Upper Canada, will be the Asper Centre’s Constitutional-Litigator-in-Residence for the fall of 2016. 

Minor, former constitutional litigator with the Constitutional Law Branch of Ontario's Ministry of the Attorney General, will be teaching constitutional advocacy in the Asper Centre clinic during the fall term. Her depth of experience litigating many leading constitutional cases on behalf of Ontario will greatly enrich the students' experience in the clinic. As is the tradition, she will also be giving a public lecture for the benefit of all of the students and faculty at the University of Toronto law school.

“Her experience litigating Charter cases on behalf of the government will bring an added dimension to the Asper Clinic for the students this year” says Executive Director, Cheryl Milne. "I am really looking forward to working with her."
