own hard drive, thereby prohibiting access to other material). The result is
that they upload the exam when finished to a dedicated website from which
we later print off their answers for the individual professor or sessional lecturer,
or e-mail the exams to them. The result is that no one has to decipher
poor (and sometimes almost impossible) handwriting in order to mark the
exams. Oh, I wish that had been available many years ago when I think of
some of the chicken scratch I had to read!
Associate Professor Tesh Dagne recently authored “Protection of Biodiversity
and Associated Traditional Knowledge in Canada: Ensuring Community
Control in Access and Benefit Sharing” (2017) 30:2 Journal of
Environmental Law and Practice 97. I am also very pleased to note that he
was successful in obtaining a Social Sciences and Humanities Research
Council of Canada Insight Development Grant in the amount of $43,700.
His research project, entitled “3D Printing, the Canadian Consumer and
Intellectual Property Law”, builds on this cutting-edge area of law in which
he has been particularly active of late.
Associate Professors Chris Hunt, Lorne Neudorf (now of the University
of Adelaide) and Micah Rankin recently completed The Guide to the B.C.
Interpretation Act (Toronto: Carswell, 2017). This book is now available. It
is an important addition to the law library for any B.C. lawyer who deals
with provincial legislation on a frequent basis. Professors Hunt and Rankin
also co-authored “The Principled Exception to Hearsay Revisited” (2017)
22:1 International Journal of Evidence & Proof 68. Professor Hunt also wrote
“Review of R. Krotoszynski, Privacy Revisited” (2017) 6:1 Canadian Journal of
Human Rights 197.
One of the supporters of our law school, Madam Justice Hope Hyslop,
retired from the B.C. Supreme Court last November. While a significant loss
to that court and the many counsel who had appeared before her over the
years, it did contain several silver linings for TRU Law. It has resulted in the
redeployment of another longstanding supporter of our faculty, Mr. Justice
Len Marchand Jr., from Kelowna back to Kamloops, where he was welcomed
with great affection by a large crowd for a formal, public ceremony
on February 9 presided over by Chief Justice Chris Hinkson. It also has
enabled us to recruit the Honourable Hope Hyslop to join the board of
directors of our TRU Legal Clinic Society and to help mentor some of our
students in our Community Legal Clinic.
