Sarah Mason-Case teaches Climate Law (2015-2017) and Environmental Law (2018) at Osgoode. She is a Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholar and doctoral candidate at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law. Her research examines how legality is practiced and contested in international climate law, focusing on pluralism within the UN climate regime, derivative economic instruments, and civil society calls for “climate justice”. Her interests include international law, international relations, climate and environmental governance, and integrating the “practice turn” into international law theory. Before returning to academia, Sarah worked in law reform at the Law Commission of Ontario and the International Development Law Organization, practiced in various institutions, and was a judicial law clerk at the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.
