Biography

I am a faculty member at the University of Windsor Faculty of Law, and the author of Accessibility, Quality, and Profitability for Personal Plight Law Firms: Hitting the Sweet Spot.

I study access to justice. My work asks how the law and legal institutions work in real life. It also aspires to improve the ability of law and legal institutions to actually create justice. Empirical research (quantitative and qualitative) and policy analysis are key tools in my scholarship. I draw upon and seek to contribute to the law and society and empirical legal studies traditions. In July 2017, I became Editor-in-Chief of the Windsor Yearbook of Access to Justice, a peer-reviewed and open-source scholarly journal.

I teach and write in the fields of civil dispute resolution, legal ethics and professionalism, legal services regulation, and family law. I direct Professional Identity and Legal Skills, a week-long legal practice simulation in which all Windsor Law 1L students participate. In March 2017, I received the Windsor Student Law Society Faculty Award for teaching.

Version 2My book Legal Services Regulation at the Crossroads: Justitia’s Legions is available from Edward Elgar Press in hardcover and as an affordable e-book.  

Version 2  I live with my wife, Angélique Moss, and our children Madeleine and Malcolm in the west end of Toronto.
