the Advocate

Jean-Paul’s work centres around the intersecting issues pertaining to alternative dispute resolution, legal education and innovation, access to justice, marginalized and vulnerable communities, and addiction and mental health.

He graduated from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2015 and subsequently completed his time as a student-at-law with the Ministry of the Attorney General of Ontario. He was called to the Ontario bar in June of 2016. Upon graduation from Osgoode, he was awarded the Dean’s Gold Key, as well as the Legal & Literary Society Student Honour Award, both for outstanding and significant contribution and leadership in the law school community.

He works primarily within the realms of advocacy, public service, alternative dispute resolution and education. In 2020, he was awarded the Adjunct Faculty Teaching Award for his work teaching in the mediation program at Osgoode, an award intended to honour those instructors who, through innovation and commitment, have significantly enhanced the quality of learning of Osgoode JD students.
