Judith Wine

Biography

Judith Wine began her working life in the computer science field, first as a consultant and then as a college professor. After going back to school to become a lawyer, Judith moved on to advise business clients with respect to their legal issues and negotiate and draft their agreements. However, after teaching a business law course at George Brown College Judith realized that, although she found the law fascinating, it was the sharing of knowledge that evoked her passion. She is thrilled to be teaching full time at George Brown.

Judith has written one book and several articles, all focused on explaining legal concepts to non-lawyers. She succeeds as a teacher because she is caring, fair, knowledgeable, prepared, enthusiastic, logical and willing to approach a concept in numerous ways until her students fully understand it.
