Expert in Aboriginal law takes up appointment as scholar-in-residence

An experienced police officer now lecturing at Windsor Law has started a term as the school’s Ron Ianni Scholar-in-Residence, dean Camille Cameron announced Wednesday.

Ronald C. George teaches the courses “Indigenous Legal Traditions” and “Aboriginal Law in Society.”

Cameron noted his extensive experience in conflict resolution, his tireless advocacy for Aboriginal rights and his passion for supporting educational opportunities for Aboriginal people.

“Mr. George brings with him a strong commitment to pursuing justice and wellness for Aboriginal people through the development of meaningful relationships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people,” she said. “Furthermore, he believes that those relationships must be based on sharing information, understanding the impact of law on Aboriginal people and the re-institution of Indigenous values and legal traditions.”

George is a member of the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation and spent 15 years as a constable with its police service before taking on a role with the Ontario Provincial Police. He holds law degrees from Western University and the University of Ottawa, where he is currently a doctoral candidate.
