Michael Mandel (law professor)

Michael Mandel (May 6, 1948 - October 27, 2013) was a Canadian legal academic, specializing in criminal law with a particular interest in criminal sentencing and legal theory. He was a part of Osgoode Hall Law School's faculty from 1974 until 2013, having graduated from Osgoode with his LL.B. and the silver medal. Mandel also had a B.C.L. from Oxford where he studied under the late renowned legal scholar Ronald Dworkin.

In 1999, during the NATO bombing of Serbia, Mandel filed a formal complaint of NATO war crimes with the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ICTY), charging 67 NATO leaders with war crimes. Mandel's submissions were dismissed by the tribunal. He was anti-war and suggested that US President George W. Bush be banned from entering Canada because of the American invasion of Iraq. He was also a critic of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. He was a supporter of Palestinian rights.[1]
