Lawyers Without Borders of the University of Ottawa - 2014-2015 - 6 multimedia documents
Reference Number: 318
The first Lawyers Without Borders association was created in Belgium in 1992 by a group of lawyers advocating for human rights. In 2002, the movement makes its appearance in Canada. Lawyers Without Borders Canada is an organization working for the advocacy of human rights. It manages international cooperation programs and conducts missions in various countries. University associations were created to increase student and public awareness on human rights issues and on potential careers in international law. These student groups also contribute to legal research done by students, often under the supervision of professors. Between 2011 and 2014, the University of Ottawa group remained inactive due to lack of members. In 2014, the group was brought back to life under the leadership of Sarah Hébert-Tremblay. The University of Ottawa group organizes exhibits, conferences, film projections and shows. It also participates in multi-university meetings.
