The award honors Weiler's 40 years of service in this field, including 24 years as a member of the Harvard Law faculty.
According to Morley Gunderson, an economics professor at the University of Toronto, Weiler's career "proves that it is possible to advance controversial propositions... and yet maintain impeccable credentials in the academic and policy community."
After completing his LL.M. degree at Harvard in 1965, Weiler began his career as an arbitrator in Ontario. He has written extensively about labor and arbitration, and serves on both Canadian and U.S. government committees about labor reform.
