Joseph Gentile received his Juris Doctor from Osgoode Hall Law School in 2019. While at law school, Joseph studied a diverse range of practice areas, with a particular emphasis on business law and civil litigation.
Prior to entering law school, Joseph received an Honours Bachelor of Commerce degree from Ryerson University. While in business school, he focused on entrepreneurship studies and business strategy. A major component of his education involved close collaboration with businesses of all sizes to develop growth strategies and creative solutions to complex problems. In particular, Joseph would often leverage various social media platforms and data analytics to identify new sources of revenue, as well as areas requiring improvement. He was also frequently given the authority to redesign business operations to improve efficiency, which resulted in greater profits. In addition, he applied these strategies to an electronic components distributor that he worked for while in business school with similar success. For his creativity in these efforts, Joseph received the coveted Entrepreneurial Excellence Award from his school.
During law school, Joseph worked for a handful of law practices in Toronto in the areas of tort law, criminal law, and Indigenous law. In his final year of law school, Joseph worked with a large Indigenous law firm in Toronto on various projects, including the annotation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. His work directly improved the firm’s ability to produce better quality legal services that advance Indigenous rights throughout Canada.
