Law professor Julie Macfarlane has been named a member of the Order of Canada in recognition of her work to secure access to justice.
A citation noted Dr. Macfarlane’s contributions as a lawyer and mediator, and advocacy for self-represented litigants. She is director of the National Self-Represented Litigants Project.
Established in 1967 by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the Order of Canada is the cornerstone of the Canadian honours system, and recognizes people in all sectors of Canadian society.
Macfarlane’s appointment was one of 120 announced Dec. 28 by Gov. Gen. Julie Payette. Honorees will receive their insignia in Ottawa at a later date.
