About Me Morton Minc

Me Morton Minc's career focus has been on social innovation in the court system. After obtaining an arts degree from Sir George Williams University (one of Concordia’s founding institutions) in 1967, Judge Minc went on to study law at Université de Montréal, graduating in 1973. He then entered private practice, where his work took him across the country and included lecturing at both Concordia and McGill. In 1993, he was appointed judge at the Municipal Court of Montreal, where he eventually became chief justice in 2009. Judge Minc’s appointment as Jurist-in-Residence at Concordia is the first appointment of its kind for any English university in Quebec.
