Delighted to update readers on IntLawGrrl Annie Gell (right), who posted about the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia several years ago, while she was still a law student. She's now the Leonard H. Sandler Fellow in the International Justice Program at Human Rights Watch.
After graduating from Columbia Law School in 2009, Annie spent a year with the New York nonprofit Sanctuary for Families, where she represented undocumented victims of gender-based violence who were separated from their children across international borders. Immediately before joining Human Rights Watch, Annie lived and worked in Port-au-Prince, where she used her legal and advocacy skills to support grassroots women’s groups fighting the epidemic of gender-based violence in post-earthquake Haiti.
Today Annie posts on "Even a ‘Big Man’ Must Face Justice": Lessons from the Trial of Charles Taylor, a brand-new Human Rights Watch report that she authored, with editorial guidance from another HRW staffer and IntLawGrrls contributor, Elise Keppler.
