Harshi Mann is an associate at Ruby Shiller Enenajor DiGiuseppe, Barristers, where she practices criminal, regulatory and constitutional law at the trial and appellate levels. She has experience representing clients in complex and high-profile proceedings, including matters involving novel Charter issues.
Prior to joining the firm, Harshi worked in the litigation department of a top-tier international law firm, where her practice centered on constitutional and public law issues. She appeared as counsel before the Federal Court of Canada, and all trial and appellate levels of court in British Columbia and Yukon. She also appeared before the Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, formerly the Chief Justice of Canada, in the course of a special investigation into the misuse of public funds.
Harshi received her J.D. from Queen’s University Faculty of Law. During law school, she competed in multiple written and oral advocacy competitions, including in the Canadian finals of the Philip C. Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition. She also devoted substantial time to researching the management of administrative segregation under provincial and federal legislation in the course of Charter litigation. She went on to publish a paper entitled “Administrative Segregation: Managing Punishment Through Policy”, which examined how broad correctional discretion derived from policy, rather than legislation, has failed to uphold the rule of law in Canadian prisons.
Outside her practice, Harshi actively contributes to the legal community, including by mentoring law students, providing pro-bono legal services, and evaluating and judging at advocacy competitions. In her spare time, Harshi enjoys staying active and has competed at the Canadian National Championships for both soccer and ultimate frisbee. Harshi is fluent in English and Punjabi, and conversational in Hindi and Urdu.
Harshi is called to the bars of Ontario and British Columbia.
