In January 2020, Pablo Holmes arrived at the Schulich School of Law from his home country of Brazil to begin a term as a visiting scholar. Although COVID-19 has changed some of his plans, he’s decided to remain in Halifax until May and continue his research in the areas of constitutional law and political theory.
Together with the Legal Information Society of Nova Scotia, Schulich Law prof Jocelyn Downie has developed an easy-to-use website app to help people to prepare a personal directive for health and personal-care decisions made on their behalf — a topic with heightened relevance given the COVID-19 pandemic.
Schulich Law is known for committed professors who give students an outstanding legal education, while making them feel welcome and supported in our close-knit, collegial community. The winners of this year’s teaching awards are truly an inspiration to our students.
