Biography

Alain Roussy completed his undergraduate studies (B.Sc., 1998) and legal studies (LL.B., 2002, French common law program) at the University of Ottawa.  He completed his articles as a law clerk at the Supreme Court of Canada with the Honourable Justice Ian Binnie and was then called to the bar as a member of the Law Society of Ontario in 2003.  

He subsequently joined Osler, Hoskin & Harcourt LLP in Toronto as a lawyer practising business law.  In 2005, he joined Heenan Blaikie LLP in Toronto where he practised in litigation and labour law.  In 2008, he became in-house legal counsel at the University of Ottawa handling a wide range of legal matters for the University.  He completed his master (LL.M.) in 2012 at the University of Ottawa and joined the Faculty of Law as a professor in January 2013.  

In 2015-2017, he was a member of the Ottawa Health Science Network Research Ethics Board.  Since 2016 he is a member of the board of directors of the Canadian Association for Legal Ethics (CALE).  In 2016, he received two fellowships: the Fall 2016 National Institute for Teaching Ethics and Professionalism (NIFTEP) Fellowship and the 2016-2017 Ontario Bar Association (OBA) Foundation Chief Justice of Ontario Fellowship in Legal Ethics and Professionalism Research.

He is the proud recipient of a 2016-2017 Excellence in Teaching Award at the Faculty of Law.

Since March 2017, he also acts as director of pratiquO, the Faculty's new French-language continuing professional development centre.
