Last Thursday, the Barreau du Québec announced the names of the lawyers who will received the Advocatus Emeritus (Ad. E.) title in 2017. The Faculty of Law is happy to report that several of them are members of the McGill Law community.

We offer our warmest congratulations to Professors Fabien Gélinas, Ad. E., and René Provost, Ad. E., along with alumni Francine Payette, Ad. E. (BCL’81), Shahir Guindi, Ad. E. (BCL’89, LLB’89) and Daniel Desjardins, Ad. E. (LLM’83).

The Advocatus Emeritus title is awarded to members of the Bar who have distinguished themselves through a remarkable career, outstanding contributions to the profession, or constructive community work.

The official award ceremony will take place on November 21, 2017 in Montreal.
