Douglas M Johnston Lecture

The Douglas M Johnston Lecture is an annual lecture that began in 2009 to honour the late Douglas M Johnston. Invited speakers are selected for their demonstrated leadership in the field of public policy and their interest in promoting social and environmental justice.

Douglas M Johnston was a leading teacher, scholar, and writer in the international marine and environmental law community. His numerous contributions to the Schulich School of Law included the development of the marine and environmental law program, the strengthening of the graduate program and the enhancement of the faculty's strong scholarly reputation. He published ground-breaking scholarly works on the regulation of international fisheries, the theory of ocean-boundary, treaty law and the history of international law. His last book, which he completed very shortly before he died, received a posthumous award from the American Society of International Law.
