Academic Biography

I am a faculty member at the University of Windsor Faculty of Law.

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 analy
sis are key tools in my scholarship. I draw upon and seek to contribute to the law and society and empirical legal studies traditions. Between 2017 and 2019, I was 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 the Windsor Legal Practice Simulatio, 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.

My book Accessibility, Quality, and Profitability for Personal Plight Law Firms: Hitting the Sweet Spot is available free from the Canadian Bar Association.

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.

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