    Chelsea Hishon, Law 1, Awarded CLA-ACE Internship

    Chelsea Hishon, Law 1, has been selected by Canadian Lawyers Abroad-Avocats canadiens a l'etranger (CLA-ACE) to participate in the 2010 Summer Student Internship Program. Chelsea will be spending the summer in Bangkok, Thailand working with ECPAT (End Child Prostitution, Child Pornography and Trafficking of Children for Sexual Purposes), an international child rights organization. Chelsea will research national legislation and procedures relating to ECPAT's mandate and assist in the operation of various ECPAT initiatives and programs.

    Canadian Lawyers Abroad is a national organization engaging in groundbreaking work in the developing world in areas of good governance, rule of law and human rights. Director of Student Programs, Monique Moreau announced Chelsea's selection. "Chelsea is to be congratulated as this was, similarly to last year, an extremely competitive process with students across the country vying for a small number of internships" she noted.

    Chelsea holds an Honours degree in Psychology and Sociology. Prior to attending law school, she was a child and youth worker in both residential and school settings and a Program Manager for a residential facility. In addition to her role with the Windsor Law chapter of Canadian Lawyers Abroad, Chelsea is an active student volunteer at Community Legal Aid.

    The Faculty of Law has provided a Social Justice Travel Subsidy to assist with Chelsea's summer expenses. The Windsor Law Chapter of Canadian Lawyers Abroad also engaged in a number of fundraising activities to support Chelsea's internship this summer.

    Congratulations Chelsea!
