President Alastair Summerlee has announced that judicial officer Mary Childs has accepted the role of legal counsel for the University, effective immediately.
This position change is part of an ongoing process of assessing and managing the University's risk management and legal services, which have expanded in recent years because research and academic activities now often have additional statutory and contractual responsibilities, says Summerlee.
Childs, a law graduate of the University of Western Ontario, has been responsible for the appeals procedures and hearings on campus, co-ordinating legal matters and working with external solicitors and consultants. In her new post, she will continue the legal aspects of her position and take on a more active role in managing U of G's day-to-day legal needs.
During this period of reorganization, Shari Dorr, co-ordinator of the Undergraduate Academic Information Centre, will assume responsibilities for the appeals procedures and hearings associated with the Judicial Office.
