About the Author

Dr. Mohan Prabhu worked as a senior counsel with the Canadian Department of Justice in Ottawa prior to his retirement, and in that capacity gained valuable experience in regulatory matters, especially in the fields of bankruptcy, environment, and customs and excise. He was the architect of the federal administrative monetary penalties system adopted in 1995, first by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and subsequently by Revenue Canada (Customs and Excise), Environment Canada, and several other federal departments. Prior to joining the federal government, he taught law in Toronto and Saskatoon. He was awarded the rank of Queen’s Counsel in 1990.

Dr. Prabhu edited the Annotated Customs Act from 1991 to 2012, the chapter on Customs and Excise Laws of Canada in the Canadian Encyclopedic Digest (Ontario) from 1983 to 2004, and the chapter on Customs Law in the Canada-U.S. Relocation Manual, 2011 and 2016, for Thomson Reuters. He is also the author of Canada’s Laws on Import and Export: An Overview (2014).

Mohan Prabhu holds undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Bombay, an LL.M. with distinction from the University of London, England, and a doctorate of law from the University of Ottawa.
He was called to the bars in four jurisdictions: India (state of Maharashtra), England (Lincoln’s Inn), and Canada (Saskatchewan and Ontario), from all of which he has now retired.
