Kudos to Annie Gell

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.
Heartfelt congratulations!
