Windsor Law dean accepts position at Dalhousie

UWindsor President and Vice-Chancellor Alan Wildeman, and Douglas Kneale, Provost and Vice-President, Academic, today announced that Faculty of Law Dean Camille Cameron will be leaving the University of Windsor this summer.

Professor Cameron has accepted a position as Dean of Dalhousie University’s Schulich School of Law, beginning September 1, 2015.

Cameron joined Windsor Law in January 2012. Her areas of research and teaching interest include the administration of civil justice; class actions; civil procedure; dispute resolution; comparative law; and law reform in transitional legal systems.

Prior to her academic career, Cameron was a practicing lawyer at Stewart McKelvey Stirling Scales in Halifax. She earned an LL.M at the University of Cambridge and an LL.B. at the University of New Brunswick.

 “Camille has done a wonderful job for Windsor Law and for our students,” said Dr. Wildeman. “Her departure is a loss for the University of Windsor and a gain for Dalhousie.  We have an outstanding Law School in Windsor and Camille will now be able to watch from afar as our faculty, staff and students continue to set a high bar.”

During her time at UWindsor, Cameron has served as a member of Senate; Deans’ Council; Faculty Council and on various University committees and working groups.

“Having worked closely with Dean Cameron on strategic issues for the Faculty of Law specifically, and UWindsor as a whole, I know what an astute and collegial academic leader she has been,” said Dr. Kneale. “I shall miss her perspective. My best wishes to her as she steps into her new role.”

Previous to her UWindsor appointment, Professor Cameron held various positions at the University of Melbourne, including Director, Civil Justice Research Group, and Associate Dean, Undergraduate Studies. She was also a visiting faculty member at City University of Hong Kong in the 1990s.

"Windsor Law School is a special place and it will be hard to leave,” Cameron said.  “But Halifax is home and it will be good to be with family and friends. It has been a real honour to be the Dean of Law at the University of Windsor."

An Acting Dean will be named soon, following which the University will conduct a formal search for a new Dean.
