Profile

Raphaël Grenier-Benoit is a doctoral student at the University of Oxford Faculty of Law, where he conducts research under the supervision of Professor Richard Ekins. Fascinated by issues at the intersection of law, politics, and morality, his research focuses on constitutional interpretation and on the role of the judiciary in harmonizing law to social change. Before studying law, Raphaël worked for almost a decade in the media, notably as an actor in the Radio-Canada series Les Parent. He also co-developed and hosted a documentary series highlighting the community involvement of young francophones. Following those experiences, he obtained a bachelor's degree in civil law and common law at McGill University's Faculty of Law, and an MPhil in law (with Distinction) at the University of Oxford. While at McGill, he served as Executive Editor of the McGill Law Journal, worked as a law clerk for Judge Jean-Pierre Archambault of the Court of Quebec, and as a research assistant for Professor Mark D. Walters. In addition to his academic activities, Raphaël sits on the board of directors of the Fête de la lecture et du livre jeunesse de Longueuil, and is a member of the International Association of Young Lawyers.
