OISE alum Justice Marvin Zuker makes landmark decision in sexual assault case

Summer 2016

Justice Marvin Zuker, an OISE professor and master of education graduate, made headlines across the country for his decision to hand down a guilty verdict in the sexual assault case of York University student Mandi Gray. 

In his statement, provincial court Judge Zuker delivered a powerful speech about sexual violence and women’s rights.

“Rape it was. No confusion. No uncertainty from this court. Mandi Gray remembered. Asking her to remember the details is ridiculous… Behavioural stereotypes – like delayed reporting, emotional state, lack of resistance – should not impact credibility,” he said.

Justice Zuker’s decision in the sexual assault trial was covered extensively by media across Canada and some outlets abroad, including The Guardian (UK).


Justice Zuker, who became a professor at OISE in 1982, currently teaches courses in higher education and the law, the legal context of education and advanced issues in education. 

He graduated from OISE with a Master’s of Education (MEd) in 1973. He received his law degree from Osgoode Hall Law School in 1966, and his Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree from the University of Toronto in 1963. In 2015, Justice Zuker was awarded an OISE Teaching Award in the category of Distinguished Contributions to Teaching.
