York University Names New Head of Reformed Ombuds Office

York President Mamdouh Shoukri has appointed Professor John McCamus as the University’s next Ombudsperson, effective April 1, 2009. The move completes a decision to split the duties of campus Ombuds and director of the Centre for Human Rights, which had previously been filled by Fiona Crean. Nöel Badiou was named the new director of Centre for Human Rights in October 2008. Before joining the faculty of York’s Osgoode Hall Law School in 1971, McCamus was a law clerk for the Supreme Court of Canada. McCamus teaches and writes on the subjects of contract, commercial & consumer transactions, contract remedies and restitution. He is a member of the advisory committee for the Restatement of Restitution 3d. In 2007, the Ontario government appointed McCamus to a three-year term as the chair of Legal Aid Ontario. (YFile.)
