Bio/Research

Kernaghan Webb is an associate professor in the Lincoln Alexander School of Law at Toronto Metropolitan University (formerly Ryerson) and the Law and Business program at the Ted Rogers School of Management (TRSM). He teaches at the undergraduate and graduate levels on law and business issues, including law of the marketplace and legal aspects of corporate social responsibility. He is also the director of the university’s Institute for the Study of Corporate Social Responsibility. He holds bachelor’s, master’s and PhD degrees in law. Webb’s teaching, research, and action has focused on innovative approaches to regulation, including understanding the legal dimensions associated with “non-state” regulatory approaches (at the national and international level). Of particular interest, both in his research and teaching, is the intersection of law and the marketplace as different means of regulation.

Webb has published extensively on regulatory innovation issues, and his work on regulatory offences has been cited and followed by the Supreme Court of Canada. Prior to joining Toronto Met, Webb was a senior legal policy advisor and chief of research for the Office of Consumer Affairs at the federal Department of Industry. Before that, he was a consultant acting on behalf of the Law Reform Commission of Canada. Webb has an extensive background and experience in public policy, law, and regulation.
