The former editor-in-chief of Canadian Lawyer magazine, InHouse magazine and Law Times has been named one of two journalists appointed to Osgoode Hall Law School’s inaugural Journalist in Residence Program for the fall of 2017.

Gail J. Cohen and Roxana Olivera, a Canadian investigative journalist of Peruvian heritage, will each spend time during the 2017-18 academic year pursuing journalistic projects that will engage the Osgoode community, involve law students and “enrich our understanding of law and its impact,” according to a statement from the law school.

“We received stellar applications from talented journalists for these two positions,” said Osgoode Dean Lorne Sossin in a press release today. “We’re delighted that Gail Cohen and Roxana Olivera will be joining us to explore stories about justice and the impact of law in our society and in our world.”
