McGill Faculty of Law professors combined for a potent one-two punch as they took two of the three top prizes of the prestigious Prix de la Fondation du Barreau du Québec in June. Professor Robert Leckey won the prize in the category “Best Article” for a paper he published in the Osgoode Hall Law Journal last year called “Prescribed by Law / Une règle de droit” on legal bilingualism in public law. Professor Lara Khoury won the prize in the category “Best Monograph” for her book Uncertain Causation in Medical Liability, published by Hart in England in 2006. The Prix de la Fondation du Barreau is designed to recognize original scholarship of interest to the legal profession and the academic world.
