Location:Canada

Dr. John Borrows, Anishanaabe legal scholar, and trailblazing law professor at the University of Minnesota, author of Canada’s Indigenous Constitution and Drawing Out Law.

John Borrows is one of Canada’s most prolific and celebrated legal scholars and a professor of law at the University of Minnesota. He has written and spoken widely on aboriginal legal rights and traditions, treaties and land claims, and religion and the law. He’s also Anishinaabe, a member of the Neyaashiinigmiing community, the Cape Croker First Nation on Bruce Peninsula in North-Western Ontario. Well steeped in both traditions of law, Borrows is uniquely positioned to reflect on the essential nature of law itself.
