On February 6, 2007, the Attorney-General of Ontario announced that Prof. Michael Trebilcock is one of the recipients of this year's Mundell Medal. The Mundell Medal is presented annually to an Ontario writer on legal or professional matters who has, by publication in the preceding year or over a period of years, made a distinguished contribution to law and letters. Prof. Trebilcock holds the chair in Law and Economics at the Faculty of Law and specializes in law and economics, international trade, and contract and commercial law. He serves as Co-Director of the Law and Economics Program at the University of Toronto. In 1999, Prof. Trebilcock was awarded the Canada Council Molson Prize in the Humanities and Social Sciences and was elected an Honorary Foreign Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

The Mundell Medal was established in 1986 to honour the late David W. Mundell, a pre-eminent constitutional lawyer and, for many years, counsel in the Ministry of the Attorney General.
