Susheel Gupta Receives Inaugural OJEN Lennox Award
Susheel Gupta, an Ottawa based lawyer with a long history of justice education activities, has become the first recipient of the Lennox Award for Innovation in Justice Education.
Sush Gupta was selected to receive the award as a result of the leadership role he has taken in promoting justice education in the Ottawa region. He is committed to providing students with a positive exposure to the law, through his work on both the Canadian Bar Association Law Day Committee and the Ottawa OJEN Committee. His efforts have also ensured that teachers can develop their knowledge at the OJEN Summer Law Institutes. In each of these roles Sush has been a consistent and active volunteer in both planning and delivering these programs. Sush has demonstrated a strong commitment to young people and has always ensured that their interests are the focus of these justice education events.
Whether planning an event, speaking to new volunteers, or engaging with students, Sush conveys enthusiasm and invites others to learn more about the justice system. Through his efforts, Sush is helping to build a civil society through education and dialogue.
East’s regional judicial contacts are Justice Brian Abrams of the Superior Court of Justice, and Justice Célynne Dorval of the Ontario Court of Justice.
