McGill University has announced that 2014 scholar Aaron Mills will join its Faculty of Law as an assistant professor in August 2018. Mills’ research and teaching focuses on Indigenous legal systems and the Indigenous constitutional orders that guide and sustain them. He is currently completing his doctorate at the University of Victoria, where he is working to create a theory of Anishinaabe legal order. Dean Robert Leckey and 2003 scholar welcomed the appointment, saying, “My colleagues and I are terribly excited about the contributions that Aaron Mills will make to our community. He is arriving as we work to realize the unfulfilled promise of our longstanding commitment to studying multiple legal traditions as it relates to Indigenous law."
