Following his graduation with honors from the University of Western Ontario, from which he received a Bachelor of Arts in economics in 1970, Paul M. Mann was encouraged to pursue a doctorate while also playing varsity football. His football coach advised him about the field of law, thereby sparking Mr. Mann’s interest in the field. He went on to earn a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Windsor in 1974 and became a certified specialist in both medical malpractice and civil litigation.
Following his receipt of his law degree, Mr. Mann worked as a lawyer for Glithero, Spearn & Mann from 1978 to 1981. Since departing from that firm, he has excelled as a trial lawyer and the president of the eponymously named Paul Mann Professional Corporation, located in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. Specializing in medical malpractice cases, he has since served as senior counsel for many firms for more than 40 years. Notably, he participated in the first trial regarding autism in Canada in 2001, which he cites as a career highlight.
To remain abreast of developments in the ever-evolving field of law, Mr. Mann has maintained membership with numerous organizations.

Likewise, he is affiliated with the Shades Mill Law Association, the Holland Group, the Canadian Medical Protection Association, the Waterloo Regional Law Association and the Canada Bar Association.
