Professor Matthew Lewans has been appointed the TransCanada Chair in Administrative and Regulatory Law at the University of Alberta Faculty of Law for a three-year term that began on July 1.

Lewans’s research and teaching interests concern the interface between administrative law, constitutional law, jurisprudence and professional responsibility.

His book, Administrative Law and Judicial Deference (Oxford, Hart Publishing, 2016), explores the normative underpinnings of the common law doctrine of judicial deference from historical, comparative, and theoretical perspectives.

He has also published numerous articles in the University of Toronto Law Journal, Queen’s Law Journal, McGill Law Journal, Constitutional Forum, and the Alberta Law Review, and has presented his research to local, national, and international audiences.
