Nader R. Hasan

Partner, Stockwoods LLP

Nader Hasan is a lawyer who has participated in numerous criminal, regulatory and constitutional law cases spanning a range of important issues, such as climate change, national security and the rights of Indigenous and racialized persons. This year, Hasan has appeared before the Court of Appeal in R. v. Sharma, which may potentially be an important case discussing the over-incarceration of Indigenous individuals, and in R. v. Morris, which brings up the timely issue of systemic anti-Black racism in sentencing. He is also acting on behalf of the Faqiri family in the case involving the death of Soleiman Faqiri, a mentally ill prisoner who died while in solitary confinement. Last year, he represented seven youths in a constitutional challenge that questioned the Ontario government’s choice to reduce its climate change targets. He is also an adjunct professor at the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, where he has taught classes on evidence, crime and punishment, as well as an advisory board member at the university’s David Asper Centre for Constitutional Rights.
