Daniel Del Gobbo is a Doctor of Juridical Science (S.J.D.) Candidate at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, where he is attending with the support of a Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholarship, CBA Viscount Bennett Fellowship, and SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship. His current research considers the use of alternative dispute resolution, restorative justice, and systems design processes in resolving gender-based conflicts, with a focus on the problem of campus sexual violence in Canada. Previously, Daniel earned a Master of Laws (LL.M.) from Harvard Law School.
Daniel is currently an Adjunct Professor at Osgoode Hall Law School where he teaches "Dispute Settlement," an advanced, upper-year seminar in ADR and dispute systems design, and leads a team of over 30 instructors as the Course Director of "Lawyer as Negotiator," an experiential learning course in representative negotiation. He has received the Osgoode Hall Law School Teaching Award for Adjunct Faculty in recognition of his contributions to the Osgoode community.
Daniel's academic and advocacy work are committed to the public interest. He has advised organizations including the Women's Legal Education and Action Fund (LEAF), Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA), and International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) on projects related to restorative justice, sexual violence, humanitarian negotiation, women's rights, and LGBTQ2 equality in Canada. Before entering academia, Daniel maintained a busy litigation practice in both the private and public sectors, working for two multinational law firms as well as one of the largest social housing providers in North America.
Daniel will be a Visiting Scholar with the Center for Gender and Sexuality Law at Columbia Law School in the spring of 2019.
