Edward Ducharme

UWindsor alum and former professor appointed to Ontario Court of Appeal

For a former English professor who never intended to practice law, Windsor’s Edward Ducharme sure has made a mark in the justice system.

Ducharme, 68, holds three UWindsor degrees (BA English 1967, MA 1969, LLB 1985), and entered law only in his mid-40s, yet he was just appointed a judge on the highest court in the province: the Ontario Court of Appeal. He will be officially sworn in May 29 at a ceremony at Toronto’s Osgoode Hall.
