The inaugural biennial report from the office of the Vice-Dean of Research and Communications of the Civil Law Section is now available online.
The Civil Law Section draws on a long tradition of innovative, influential and open-minded legal research. Research endeavours led by our faculty members contribute to the development of knowledge in law and the social sciences and make a significant impact on law reform and the adoption of public policies at local, national and international levels.
This first biennial report presents the research carried out in the Civil Law Section from July 1, 2014 to April 30, 2016. This period corresponds with the arrival of a new dean, Céline Lévesque, and a new management team, as well as several new faculty members and new support staff in the research office. These additions have helped to diversify our research expertise and enhance the support we offer to our researchers. This period also coincides with a record number of awards, distinctions and research grants obtained by our researchers.
In this report you will find a brief presentation of the research office, a summary of the activities conducted by our research centres and chairs, an account of the funding received by our researchers, a list of awards and honors obtained by our professors, a look at some new research initiatives, and a complete list of publications.
Together we have succeeded in creating a culture of research excellence within this Faculty. Congratulations to all of our researchers and all of their supporters!
