Biography

Stéphane is a professor of law (professeur titulaire) at the Université de Montréal, where he teaches subjects in international law and constitutional law. He holds a Ph.D. in international public law from the University of Cambridge, where he also earned an LL.M. (first class honour) in comparative constitutional law. His background is bijural: civil law at the University of Ottawa (summa cum laude) and common law at Dalhousie Law School; he clerked at the Supreme Court of Canada. He was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence, a Neil MacCormick Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, a James Flaherty Fellow at the University College Cork, and a visiting professor in Toulouse, Amsterdam, Ulster, Trento and Padua. Professor Beaulac is the author (coauthor) or the coeditor of some 20 law books and he has published over 100 articles and papers in law journals and elsewhere, including with Oxford University Press, Cambridge University Press, Springer and Routledge.  His writings have won awards and, indeed, were cited by the Supreme Court of Canada and by the International Court of Justice in The Hague. A lawyer with the Ontario Bar, Stéphane’s expertise in legislative drafting and interpretation was called upon in Quebec; he was also a witness on public law matters before parliamentary committees in Ottawa. He has given conferences in the United States, in Europe and around the world. He is a public intellectual, often contributing to current debates in printed and online media, as well as on radio and television. Stéphane is also a counsel (avocat-conseil) with the litigation group at the Montreal office of Dentons S.E.N.C.R.L.
