Taking your JD to International Heights


Are you interested in practicing overseas? Looking for information on how to carve out your own opportunities?Join us for an informal chat with Osgoode alum Tiffany Smith (Class of 2015), who will share about her journey as an aspiring human rights lawyer.

Some background on Tiffany: In the summer after 1L, Tiffany participated in the ILP Fellowship Program, where she worked at the Foundation for Human Rights Initiative in Kampala, Uganda. She fell in love with the country, the culture and the people, and happily returned to Kampala the following summer to work at the Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL) with the help of the Ian Scott Public Interest Fellowship. This past year, Tiffany was accepted into the Canadian Bar Association Young Lawyers International Program and participated in a 6-month internship at the Katiba Institute in Kenya. And in a few days, Tiffany will be jetting off to Uganda once again to work at Engineers without Borders. We are grateful to have such a great resource make some time in her busy schedule to come and speak with us, and provide us some insight on pursuing a non-traditional legal career.
