Law profs named editors-in-chief of professional journal

Since 2015, Windsor Law has hosted the editorial offices of the Canadian Bar Review (CBR). The CBR was founded in 1923 and is the bilingual peer-reviewed legal journal of the Canadian Bar Association, where theory and practice meet. Its mission is to serve the legal profession, the bench, the bar, and the academy by publishing the highest quality legal scholarship that will shape discussion on the most relevant legal issues of our time.

Recently, the Canadian Bar Association and Windsor Law agreed to partner for another five-year term, with professors Christopher Waters and Wissam Aoun acting as the journal’s editors-in-chief.

“This journal is nearly 100 years old, but it is open access and tackles the major legal issues of our day,” said Dr. Waters, an expert in public international law who joined the faculty in 2007. “It was a pleasure to co-edit the review with Prof. David Tanovich for the first five years; in particular David brought a keen eye to issues of ethics and professionalism. I’m now looking forward to working with my colleague, Prof. Wissam Aoun, as we co-edit the review for the next five years.”

Having joined the Faculty of Law in 2019 as an expert in intellectual property law, Prof. Aoun said he is excited for the opportunity to contribute to the prestigious journal.

“I am truly delighted and humbled to join Professor Waters as co-editor,” he adds. “The CBR has a long history as one of Canada’s leading law journals, and to have the opportunity to participate in Windsor Law’s lead in editing this journal is such a tremendous honour.”
