Associate Professor, Osgoode Hall Law School, York University

Most of my work is related to the Justice and Corporate Accountability Project. Volunteer lawyers and law students study specific cases in order to look for appropriate corporate accountability mechanisms. We have engaged in a variety of initiatives including shareholder motions, securities act complaints, analysis of Access to Information requests, amici curiae before the Constitutional Tribunal in Peru, submissions to United Nations treaty bodies, petitions before the Interamerican Commission on Human Rights, an intervention in the Chevron case at the Supreme Court of Canada, as well as articles in journals that arise out of our work.
