Legal Studies professor Vincent Kazmierski has been widely acknowledged with multiple awards for his innovative teaching methods at Carleton University, including a 2010 Faculty of Public Affairs Teaching Excellence Award, a 2012 Carleton University Teaching Achievement Award, and a 2014 Provost’s Fellowship in Teaching Award.
Vincent’s style focuses on making law practical and applicable. He sees great importance in showing students how their work can impact real law. He does this through humour and recounting his own life experiences.
Vincent’s teaching style is constantly developing because he says that in order to be a good professor, you have to be a good learner.
Since joining Carleton, Vincent has focused on teaching and developing courses at an undergraduate level. He draws on his own experiences to facilitate his students’ understanding of the complexities of the Canadian legal system.
