Peter Bowal

Peter has published in numerous well-respected Canadian and international law journals and professional publications. His primary field of research is employment law and, in particular, the legal regulation of whistleblowing. He is currently a professor of law at the University of Calgary’s Haskayne School of Business. He has taught whistleblowing and employment law courses in law schools at the University of Western Ontario and Michigan State University. Peter is interested in what Canadians understand about their laws and how the law is taken up and applied by lay Canadians.

In 2001-2002, Peter was the only non-American serving as a Judicial Fellow at the United States Supreme Court. In the Office of the Administrative Assistant to the Chief Justice of the United States in Washington, DC, his duties included speech writing and research, briefing visiting dignitaries, preparing analytical reports and overseeing the Supreme Court’s Judicial Internship Program.
