The Advocates’ Society Recognizes Michael Rosenberg for Distinguished Advocacy

Toronto, May 17 2019 — McCarthy Tétrault congratulates partner Michael Rosenberg, the 2019 recipient of The Advocates’ Society Arleen Goss Young Advocates’ Award. The award recognizes innovative and passionate advocacy, and contributions towards the advancement of social justice.

This recognition comes on the heels of Michael recently being awarded the Ontario Bar Association’s Heather McArthur Memorial Young Lawyers' Award.

“Michael continues to demonstrate an outstanding commitment to advocacy and serving the community in pursuit of equal access to justice,” said Caroline Zayid, National Practice Group Leader, Litigation. “I am exceptionally proud of his contributions to the legal profession and communities in which we operate.”

Michael’s litigation practice focuses on class actions and complex commercial disputes. In addition to his private practice, he is an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Law, where he teaches class actions.

Michael leads the McCarthy Tétrault team representing the Canadian Civil Liberties Association in its successful challenge to the constitutionality of prolonged solitary confinement in Canadian prisons. He also serves as the director of McCarthy Tétrault’s initiative to provide pro bono representation on criminal trials and appeals in partnership with the University of Toronto’s Downtown Legal Services legal aid clinic.

The award will be presented at The Advocates’ Society end of term dinner on June 20, 2019.
