Citing “systemic issues,” Dean of Lakehead Law School stepping down

April 6, 2018

According to CBC, Angelique EagleWoman, the Dean of Lakehead University’s Law School, will step down by the end of June. “Systemic issues within the university and challenges to implementing the Bora Laskin Faculty of Law's Aboriginal and Indigenous law mandate have made my continued involvement in the law school untenable,” said EagleWoman, a member of the Sisseton-Wahpeton Oyate in Dakota, in an email to students. In a statement, Lakehead acknowledged EagleWoman’s resignation, adding that “[a]ll programs and services at our Faculty of Law continue as usual.” CBC
