Amar Bhatia
Osgoode Catalyst Fellow

Amar Bhatia is the Osgoode Catalyst Fellow for the 2013-14 academic year. Bhatia, who received a SSHRC CGS Doctoral Scholarship during his SJD, is currently completing his dissertation comparing status and authority of migrant workers and indigenous peoples under Canadian immigration law, indigenous legal traditions and Canadian Aboriginal law.

He received his LLB from Osgoode Hall, where he also worked at the Innocence Project and Parkdale Community Legal Services (immigration and refugee division). He articled and worked in union-side labour and employment law in Toronto before returning to graduate school, where he received the Howland Prize for outstanding performance in U of T’s LLM program. His article, entitled “The South of the North: Building on Critical Approaches to International Law with Lessons from the Fourth World” (2012) appeared in a special symposium issue of the Oregon Review of International Law on Third World Approaches to International Law. Another recent publication, entitled “’In a Settled Country, Everyone Must Eat': Four Questions About Transnational Private Regulation, Migration, and Migrant Work” appeared in the German Law Journal.
