VIDEO: A bittersweet farewell to Elizabeth Hughes, Assistant Professor of Law and Assistant Dean, Academic
On March 7, Elizabeth Hughes bid farewell to the law school where she completed her JD and LLM and, since 2005, has served as Assistant Professor of Law and Assistant Dean, Academic. As the next Provincial Tax Commissioner of Nova Scotia, she will advise the government on tax matters as well as design, develop, and implement tax policy and programs in the province.
In addition to teaching and administrative duties, Hughes was involved in wellness initiatives at the law school. She was an invaluable resource and advisor for anyone looking to improve the overall mental and physical well-being of students. In her own words, she was there to “brainstorm ideas, connect students with key staff at the university, assist in generating names of potential panelists both within and outside the university community, and explore ways the school might offer financial support.”
To thank Hughes for her contributions to the law school, faculty and students gathered to wish her luck in her new senior government role. But don’t despair! She will continue to serve as a part-time faculty member overseeing court clerkships at the Schulich School of Law.
