Aboriginal and Indigenous law, Indigenous legal issues, socio-legal studies, legal history and legal education
Kory is a lawyer practicing in the areas of Aboriginal and Indigenous law. He holds a Ph.D. and B.A. in sociology from Carleton University and a law degree from the University of Ottawa. Kory's doctoral research explored how Canadian law schools are engaging with reconciliation. While in law school, Kory developed an interest in Aboriginal and Indigenous law. He took courses that focused on Aboriginal and treaty rights, land claim and self-government agreements, and constitutional litigation. He also worked as a caseworker at two legal clinics and provided research assistance to professors on projects related to access to justice. When not practicing law, Kory teaches part-time at Carleton University and writes about Indigenous legal issues, access to justice, and legal education.
