Social Media and Anti-Disparagement Policies
Harris Rosen has been practising law for 24 years. He has headed up the Education Law Practice for a large Toronto based law firm for more than a decade. While he maintains his role as Education Law Counsel on Canadian legal matters with the firm, he co-founded Harris Rosen Professional Corporation in May of 2018: www.harrisrosen.com. He also co-founded a novel Not-For-Profit Canadian Corporation in 2017 devoted to high quality conferences and content related to the re-training and re-skilling of Canada’s aging demographic: www.fortyplustraining.com.
The inaugural Forty Plus Training Summit held just north of Toronto at the historic Heintzman House, attracted the former Prime Minister of Canada— the Right Hon. John N. Turner— as a keynote speaker. The conference also brought many other notable speakers.
Since 1994, Harris has headed up a large regulatory law department in a public company,
engaged in the private practice of law, and raised venture capital for a product for which he was a nominee for Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year (2000). Since his return to private practice in 2002, he has acted as legal counsel almost exclusively for private post-secondary institutions, including private career colleges, private career training institutions, and private degree granting institutions. More recently Harris has been retained by a significant number of corporate training organizations, private high schools, and language schools who wish to remain exempted from the rules of Canadian regulators.
Harris co-authored the Annotated Private Career Colleges Act, 2005, and Regulations, with Alan Wolfish Q.C., and the 2nd edition of their book with a Foreword from the Former Prime Minister of Canada (Right Honourable John Napier Turner) was released in August 2017 by Carswell Legal Publishers, a division of Thomson Reuters Canada.
While Harris’ law practice is confined to Canadian jurisdictions, he has developed valuable global industry-specific knowledge and insights by travelling extensively. Many of Harris’ clients have been foreign based businesses. He has participated actively as an attendee, sponsor, and speaker, in annual conferences hosted by various industry associations and organizations both in and outside of Canada. He continues to publish actively on regulatory compliance issues of all sorts, anti-bullying and anti-disparagement policies, and more recently on age-specific training.
His expertise has taken him to various jurisdictions around the world, including (but without limitation) to the United States, China, Kuwait, and Mongolia. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
