William Kaplan (born May 24, 1957) is a Canadian lawyer and writer.


Kaplan graduated from the University of Toronto in 1980 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. He went on to Osgoode Hall Law School at York University, where he graduated in 1983 with a Bachelor of Laws. He graduated from the University of Toronto in 1985 with a Master of Arts, and from Stanford University Law School in 1988 with a J.S.D. degree.[citation needed] Kaplan was a professor at the University of Ottawa Law School from 1989–2001.[1] In 2010 the government of Ontario awarded him the 2009 David W. Mundell medal.[2] In 2011 he was elected a bencher of the Law Society of Upper Canada.[1]


Kaplan wrote two books on the Airbus Affair.[3] Writing in The Globe and Mail in 2003, Kaplan first broke the story of the large cash payments from Schreiber to Mulroney, which had been kept secret for ten years.[4] The content of these works have been considered controversial.[5]
