Daniel Diamond is a proud member of the Opaskwayak Cree Nation and a graduate of the University of Toronto J.D. and LL.M. programs. He served as Co-Editor in Chief of the Indigenous Law Journal and as Co-President of the Indigenous Law Students Association.

Professor Diamond’s research areas include Indigenous legal traditions, Aboriginal law, legal theory, property law, and legal history. His research focuses on historic injustice and contemporary efforts at redress. His work synthesizes legal history, legal theory, and property law in analyses of Indigenous legal and political issues.
