Daniel Del Gobbo

Daniel Del Gobbo is a doctoral student at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, where he is attending with the support of a Pierre Elliott Trudeau Scholarship, CBA Viscount Bennett Fellowship, and SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship. His current research, co-supervised by Professors Brenda Cossman and Simon Stern, considers the use of alternative dispute resolution and restorative justice processes in resolving gender- and sexuality-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. 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’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 dispute resolution, women’s rights, and LGBTQ+ equality in Canada.
