Acclaimed scholar John Borrows named The Loveland Chair in Indigenous Law at U of T’s Faculty of Law – U of T News

John Borrows, one of the world’s leading scholars of Indigenous law, has been named the inaugural Loveland Chair in Indigenous Law at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law.

A member of the Chippewa of the Nawash First Nation in Ontario, Borrows completed four degrees at U of T, including his JD and LLM, and was an early-career scholar with the Faculty of Law from 1998 to 2001.

He previously held the Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Law at the University of Victoria’s Faculty of Law.

“Toronto is ingrained in me,” says Borrows, who is a professor. “My master’s considered a genealogy of law – seven generations of my family – and their interactions with the law, supervised by Professor Patrick Macklem. I also explored my ancestors’ deep connections to the eastern Great Lakes in my PhD research at Osgoode Hall Law School.”
