The faculty of law at the Western University has two new members.

Both Roxana Banu and Alfonso Nocilla have joined as assistant professors.

Banu researches private international law, private law theory and public international law. She was previously a visiting research fellow at Fordham Law School and a visiting doctoral researcher at New York University School of Law. Banu also taught conflict of laws as an adjunct faculty at Osgoode Hall Law School and Fordham Law School. Her doctorate in law is from the University of Toronto. Banu is a member of the New York bar.

Nocilla has experience at Western, having taught bankruptcy and insolvency law in the fall term, and having been a visiting professor and Catalyst Capital Fellow in insolvency law during the 2017 January term, when he taught comparative and international corporate insolvency. He is completing his doctorate at University College London in the U.K.

“I’m delighted to welcome these two new scholars to Western Law,” said dean Erika Chamberlain.

“They are already well-established in their fields and will make significant contributions to the intellectual life of the faculty.”
