Pascale Cornut St-Pierre is assistant professor at the Civil Law Section of the Faculty of Law of University of Ottawa. She joined the Perelman Centre for Legal Philosophy in 2018 as an Associate Member. Her research focuses on the ways in which business communities perceive, mobilize and develop the law in the course of their activities. Her works deal mainly with corporate and financial law, but draw heavily on research from the social sciences, such as sociology of law, economic sociology, political economy and critical studies.

Professor Cornut St-Pierre holds a B.A. (2007) and a M.A. (2009) in philosophy from the Université de Montréal, as well as an integrated degree in civil law and common law from McGill University (B.C.L./LL.B., 2013). She completed her Ph.D. at Sciences Po Law School in Paris in 2017. Her dissertation, under the supervision of Professor Benoit Frydman, is about the role of legal work in contemporary financial innovation. She analyses the role and techniques of standard-form contracts, like the ISDA Master Agreement, in the emergence of new financial instruments and the development of their global markets.

At the University of Ottawa, Professor Cornut St-Pierre teaches mainly corporate law, financial law and sociology of law. She previously was a lecturer in sociology of law and in advanced civil law obligations, at Sciences Po Paris and at the Faculty of Law of McGill University.
