Orlando is one of the truly great leaders in the legal profession.   As President of the Ontario Bar Association from 2014-15, Orlando made raising awareness about mental health problems in the legal profession his top priority.  He spoke about his own struggles and in so doing encouraged others to come forward and seek help. 

Since his term of office concluded, Orlando has continued to speak across the country to raise awareness about  mental health.  He has made a particular effort to speak at law schools across the country. Orlando was recently appointed Chief Administrator/CEO of the Administrative Tribunals Support Service of Canada and has moved to Ottawa to take up this position.  He has generously agreed to serve as a Wellness Mentor-in-Residence for our students on a pro bono basis.
