Professor Macfarlane is a Full Professor in the Faculty of Law, and will be awarded a University of Windsor Professorship (the highest honour of the University) in the Fall of 2014.
She has published widely in the area of conflict resolution, mediation, and legal practice. She is the author of the bestselling "The New Lawyer: How Settlement is Transforming the Practice of Law" (University of British Colombia Press 2008). Her student textbook "Dispute Resolution: Readings and Case Studies" is just going into its 4th edition (Emond Montgomery 2015). Both these texts are used widely in law schools throughout North America. In 2012 Julie completed a four year empirical study of Islamic divorce and published "Islamic Divorce in North America : A Shari'a Path in a Secular Society" (Oxford University Press), attracting much public and media interest.
Her new project is the National Self-Represented Litigants Project established at Windsor Law in the wake of the momentum created by her national study of self-representation, published in 2013.
Professor Macfarlane is also an active mediator and dispute resolution consultant to a wide range of organizations and government agencies.
