The Department of Law and Legal Studies is saddened to share the news of the passing of Alan Hunt, former Chancellor’s Professor in Sociology and Law. Hunt passed away on December 8, 2021 with his partner, Rosalind Allchin by his side. Hunt came to Carleton as a visitor in the departments of Law and Sociology and Anthropology in 1988 and was appointed Full Professor in 1989. Already an internationally renowned intellectual on his arrival at Carleton, at age 47, he held an LLB and a Ph.D. from Leeds University and was then Reader in Law at Middlesex University, where he had also been Head of School and Assistant Dean.  Alan certainly always left an impression, and he will be remembered as we believed he would have wished, as a keen intellectual who was mulling new ideas until the very end.
