Aloke Chatterjee, BSc, LLB, LLM, of the Ontario Bar, joined UNB Law in July 2003 and is currently Associate Professor of Law. After graduating from Dalhousie law School in 1997, Professor Chatterjee pursued post-graduate legal studies at Harvard, served as law clerk to Mr. Justice Ian Binnie at the Supreme Court of Canada, and practiced civil litigation with a national law firm in Toronto.

Professor Chatterjee’s teaching assignments have spanned both private and public law fields. He has taught Constitutional Law in the first-year of the JD Program and Civil Procedure and Evidence in the upper-year program. From time to time, he has coached UNB’s Laskin Moot team, Canada’s premier moot court competition in constitutional and administrative law.

Professor Chatterjee’s scholarly interests lie principally in two fields: the Constitution and Human Rights (especially issues of disability law and policy) and Legal Process (especially procedure and evidence in civil cases). He has presented his work in connection with programs organized by the Canadian Bar Association, the Canadian Institute for the Administration of Justice, the National Judicial Institute, and the Canadian Law and Society Association, among others. His current scholarly projects focus on the law of standing and procedural aspects of disability litigation.

Professor Chatterjee’s expertise in the field of law, public policy, and disability affairs has been sought after both provincially and nationally. From 2005-2014, he served on the New Brunswick Division Board of the Canadian National Institute of the Blind, Canada’s leading organization devoted to promoting vision health and independence for persons with vision loss. His additional work with the CNIB has included appointments on the Institute’s National Governance Committee and the National Board of Directors.

In 2010, Professor Chatterjee completed a three-year term as a member of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission. Since 2011, Professor Chatterjee has served on the Board of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association.
