Jack Woodward Law Firm
Jack founded the Victoria law firm Woodward and Company in 1988 and has since gone on to open a small practice in Campbell River remaining focused on Aboriginal Law. He was an Instructor and Adjunct Professor of Law with the University of Victoria for 16 years. He was key in helping to develop the university’s first-ever credit course in Indigenous law. Today, Jack is as active as ever, recently co-hosting CBC’s BC Today show in August 2018 to speak about the Federal Court of Appeal decision on the Trans Mountain pipeline project.
