Please extend a warm welcome to our Summer Legal Interns: Graeme Cook and Hilary Chu! We are very excited to have them join our team this summer.
Hilary is entering her third year of the combined common law and civil law program at McGill University, where she previously completed a B.A. in Economics and Political Science. At law school, she served as Co-Director of the International Refugee Assistance Project’s McGill Chapter, and represented students accused of disciplinary offences through the Student Advocacy program. Prior to law school, Hilary worked in multilateral diplomacy, serving as a member of the Canadian delegation to the 31st session of the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland.
