Congratulations Professor Adelle Blackett

Promotion AnnouncementCongratulations are in order for the humble and extraordinary legal scholar Professor Adelle Blackett!  In August 2015, Dr. Blackett was made a “Full-Professor” at McGill University.

From McGill News:

The Faculty is proud to announce that Professor Adelle Blackett, Ad. E., was promoted to the rank of Full Professor in August 2015.

“Adelle Blackett’s scholarly career has been remarkable in every respect. A world-class scholar in labour law, Adelle is regarded as an original, meticulous and insightful contributor in this field – indeed, as one of a small group of international thinkers behind the very idea of transnational labour law itself,” said Dean Daniel Jutras. “Her rich understanding of global economic trends, trade patterns, international governance, human dignity, equity and public policy has enabled her to weave together a unique perspective on the situation of migrant and domestic workers, on their fundamental rights, and on the different normative orders that play a role in shaping the lives of human beings at work.”
