Former dean of law hoping to raise profile of Law Commission of Ontario

The Law Commission of Ontario does excellent work, but that work is not as well-known as it should be, says Bruce Elman.

The former dean of Windsor Law, Elman recently began a three-year term as chair of the commission’s board of governors.

The commission is an independent institution that studies issues of importance to the people of Ontario and makes recommendations on how to improve the province’s laws.

“I believe that my role, at least in part, is to raise the profile of the Commission among policy makers, politicians - both provincial and municipal, members of the legal community, and among the people of Ontario more generally,” Elman says. “With a higher profile and an enhanced reputation, I hope that we are able to effect changes to the laws of the province that will benefit the people of Ontario.”

Windsor Law alumni Mark Leach (LLB 1977) and Andrew Pinto (LLB 1993) also sit on the commission’s board. Read more on the Windsor Law Web site.
