Noel Semple

Noel Semple is an Associate Professor at the University of Windsor Faculty of Law. 

Studying access to justice, Professor Semple's work asks how the law and legal institutions work in real life. It also aspires to improve the ability of law and legal institutions to actually create justice. Empirical research (quantitative and qualitative) and policy analysis are key tools in his scholarship. Professor Semple draws upon and seeks to contribute to the law and society and empirical legal studies traditions.


Joanna Noronha

Dr. Joanna Noronha was formerly the Wainwright Fellow at McGill Law (2019-20) and the Catalyst Fellow at Osgoode Hall (2018-19). With research focused on gender, feminist legal theory, queer theory, family law, and labour law, they hold an SJD from Harvard Law School (2018). Their dissertation combined comparative and distributive analyses of parental leave regimes in Canada and the US.  Access to justice, institutional design, and the application of conceptual tools from legal theory to the concrete issues of our times are their passion.

Dr. Noronha will be teaching Administrative Law in the Fall as well as Labour Law in the Winter, and is truly looking forward to a year of engagement with Windsor Law's remarkable students and faculty.
