The end of the semester will mark the end of Lorne Sossin’s term as dean of Osgoode Law school. For Sossin, this is a chance to devote more time to research, teaching, and community projects.

While he may be taking administrative leave, he still plans to be very much a part of Osgoode and York, but he says this is also a good opportunity to open up space for new leadership. Sossin says it is “always better to leave before your best before date.”

For Sossin, some of his most memorable public moments came from the convocation of Cindy Blackstock, who received an honorary doctorate, calling up several children of graduating Indigenous students to join her.
