Legal professionals can now brush up on international law while supporting a good cause thanks to a new program from the Canadian Centre for International Justice.
Taught by members of the legal community, the Philippe Kirsch Institute will offer legal professionals courses to advance their knowledge of international justice. All proceeds of the program will go directly towards the organization’s charity, which helps victims of torture and war crimes seek justice.
Named after internationally recognized Quebec jurist Philippe Kirsch, the institute is scheduled to be up-and-running within the year, and enable legal professionals to apply the CCIJ’s knowledge of international justice to other areas of the Canadian legal system.
