Chancellor’s Professor Margaret Ogilvie receives Order of Ontario

In recognition of her outstanding contribution to society in Ontario, Chancellor’s Professor Margaret Ogilvie was invested into the Order of Ontario on January 24, 2008.

“I am very honoured and humbled to be bracketed with others who have received the Order of Ontario,” Ogilvie said after receiving the award at Queen’s Park in Toronto.

Ogilvie was one of 27 Ontarians to receive the award this year from the lieutenant-governor of Ontario, the Hon. David Onley. This brings the total of recipients to 460. Established in 1986, the award recognizes the highest level of individual excellence and achievement in any field.

Ogilvie’s investment into the order recognizes her lifelong dedication as an educator and legal scholar. Her research interests include contract law, banking law, and law and theology, and she was designated as a chancellor’s professor in 2002. This professional title is granted only to distinguished faculty at Carleton by the president of the university.

She was also inducted as a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1993, and was a recipient of research achievement awards in 1990, 1998 and 2005. She was awarded the David W. Mundell Medal for Legal Scholarship in 1996 and the Law Society Medal in 2001 by the Law Society of Upper Canada for outstanding contributions to legal scholarship. Ogilvie is consulted widely as a legal expert and has been a visiting scholar at educational institutions abroad.

“Professor Ogilvie is an internationally renowned legal scholar whose work is both academically rigorous and innovative and makes a significant contribution to improving society. We are very proud of her achievements,” states Katherine Graham, the dean of the Faculty of Public Affairs.

Ogilvie currently teaches banking law, contract law, consumer law, and religion and the state law at Carleton. She is also writing a book as part of the Christian Jurisprudence Project, based at Emory Law School in Atlanta, Georgia. The book focuses on church law and its relation to civil law.
