As a McGill Law alumn (LL.B./B.C.L. '18), I was pleased to hear that Nicholas Kasirer was nominated to the Supreme Court of Canada.
Justice Kasirer follows in a long line of McGill Law alumni who have dedicated significant portions of their careers to public service. He joins other exceptional leaders such as current Minister of Justice David Lametti (LL.B./B.C.L. '89) and current Minister of the Environment Catherine McKenna (LL.B./B.C.L. '99).
Justice Kasirer graduated from the Faculty (LL.B./B.C.L. '85) and served as a professor for over a decade. He was later nominated Dean of the Faculty, a position which he occupied for six years. Following his deanship, Justice Kasirer was nominated to the Quebec Court of Appeal.
Justice Kasirer is an exceptional scholar and teacher. He is thoughtful and humble - as thoroughly reflected in his judicial questionnaire.
I have no doubt that he will, in his new role, further contribute to the development of the law in Canada.
