Describe your background.
I have just completed my L.L.B. degree at l’Université de Montréal. I am passionate about human rights and am committed to volunteering and working for human rights causes. I therefore contributed to legal research projects for the Iranian Unicef office and for the Ligue des droits et libertés (League of Rights and Liberties), Québec Section.
I love to learn about different areas of law. During my studies I gained experience in diverse subjects by interning at Canada’s Department of Justice and by participating in several competitions at the National Model United Nations 2012, the Jean-Pictet moot court, and at the Aboriginal Law (Plan-Nord) discussion forums. I also worked as a legal assistant at a private law firm that specializes in immigration and administrative law.
