Jonathan Rosenthal has been selected as the McMurtry Visiting Clinical Fellow. Jonathan, a Toronto-based criminal defence attorney whose practice focuses on white collar matters and regulatory offences, is no stranger to Osgoode. He graduated from the Law School in 1987 with an LLB and has been an Adjunct Professor teaching trial advocacy for almost two decades. He became Co-Director of the Trial Advocacy Program in 2009. He is a Team Leader of the Intensive Trial Advocacy Workshop, an annual course offered to practising lawyers by Osgoode Professional Development. He has also been involved with other trial advocacy programs at the University of Moncton and Notre Dame Law School.
A frequent lecturer at continuing legal education seminars, he is a former Vice-President of the Ontario Criminal Lawyers Association, an elected Bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada where he is currently the Vice-Chair of Professional Regulation, as well as a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. As a McMurtry Fellow, he will play a role in creating and strengthening bridges between the academy, Bar, and Bench, and in helping to modernize our current trial advocacy approaches and teaching materials.
