Sealy-Harrington, Joshua


Joshua Sealy-Harrington is a doctoral candidate at Columbia Law School and lawyer at Power Law. His research interrogates the complex relationships amongst law, identity, and sexuality, while his practice explores the intersection of these relationships with public, constitutional, and criminal law. In practice, Joshua has appeared before all levels of court, including the Supreme Court of Canada. Before joining Power Law, Joshua completed three judicial clerkships—two at the Supreme Court of Canada (for Justice Clément Gascon) and one at the Federal Court (for Justice Donald J. Rennie, now of the Federal Court of Appeal). His writing has been published in various law journals, The Globe and Mail, The Walrus, and Newsweek. And his legal scholarship has been cited in several textbooks, as well as in judgments of the Federal Court, Federal Court of Appeal, and Supreme Court of Canada. He is a frequent media commentator, whose analysis has been featured on CBC News, CTV News, VICE, and Canadaland. And he often presents to government, academic, and private institutions on Critical Race Theory and racial justice, including the Ministry of the Attorney General, the Department of Justice, the Indigenous Bar Association, and the Criminal Lawyers’ Association.
