Two local Attorneys are currently representing Trinidad and Tobago at a two-week internship at the prestigious Osgoode Hall Law School, York University, in Toronto, Canada.
Attorney-at-law Shoshanna V. Lall, the Senior Legal Officer in the Office of the President, is one of four attorneys from an international list of 100 applicants to have won the internship. Lall’s Research Project, “Modernising Justice: Mandatory Mediation in the Trinidad and Tobago Justice System, E-filing and Legislative Reform” and the 45-minute interview, which followed her being shortlisted, earned her a place as one of the 4 Legal Research Interns at Osgoode Hall Law School.
Among the four selected interns is another Trinidad and Tobago Attorney-at-Law, Kamla Braithwaite, who is a Judicial Research Counsel in the Judiciary of Trinidad and Tobago. Her Research Project concerns “Access to Justice for Litigants in Trinidad and Tobago.”
The Internship runs from March 6 to March 17, 2017 at Osgoode Hall Law School and will continue with the submission of a legal paper, presentations and the further action required for implementation of the Research Project in the civil justice system.
This International Legal Research Internship, financed by Global Affairs Canada (GAC), was offered through the Justice Studies Centre for the Americas (JSCA), in collaboration with Osgoode Hall Law School (OHLS), on the platform, “Improving Access to Civil Justice in Latin America”.
Applications were invited from international attorneys-at-Law practicing in various fields of law- public and private- on a topic of their choice, which supports civil justice reform in the Region, in the area of civil procedure.
