It was announced today that Benjamin Berger, currently an associate professor at the University of Victoria, has been appointed to the faculty at Osgoode Hall Law School (subject to University approval.) UVic's loss is definitely Osgoode's gain.
Ben is a member of the board of the Canadian Law and Society Association, and the editorial board of the Canadian Journal of Law and Society, who includes legal history among his research interests. Ben's latest legal history publication is "Judges, Juries, and the History of Criminal Appeals" which appeared in the February 2011 issue of the Law and History Review (Vol. 29 no.1).
