Testimonials

I feel to be lucky to attend this Certificate In Detention Reviews being taught by Raj Napal. He shared his extensive and previous work experiences along with teaching which should be the actual method. Theoretical knowledge can be obtained by the books ourselves but Raj implemented the knowledge very expertly through his practical knowledge. Overall it was a very extraordinary and excellent learning experience with Raj and I wish every instructor followed the same strategies as him. During this course, he actually prepared us for the presentation in IRB. It was a great experience being a beginner with zero practical experience.

Raj Napal

Raj Napal was called to the English Bar in 1981 and practised as a trial lawyer in criminal and civil litigation for 15 years prior to emigrating to Canada in the mid-90s. He was called to the Ontario Bar in 1996 when he established NLC lawyers in Peel, Ontario.

Raj is highly skilled in judicial review proceedings and advocacy in all the divisions of the IRB. He is also an experienced criminal and civil litigation lawyer, having won a substantial number of trials in both England and Canada. He has a number of cases published in the law reports, some of which highlighted important principles of law in his areas of practice.

In 2016, he decided to focus more on teaching and reduced his workload by restricting his practise to criminal and immigration law. He believes that his deep knowledge of the law and his three decades of litigation experience will assist students in the learning process. Raj feels privileged that he can contribute towards the mandate of Ashton College, its instructors and staff. That mandate is that our collaborative teaching environment is of a high standard so that our future licensed legal professionals are ready and fully equipped to meet the challenges of practice and excel in the work they do.
