She has worked with EarthRights International, the Centre for Public Interest Law (CEPIL) in Ghana, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) in New York, the NYU Global Justice Clinic, the Human Rights Clinic at Columbia Law School, and CCIJ. As an associate at Lorne Waldman & Associates, she practiced immigration, refugee, and human rights law. Ms. Morgenthau holds an LL.M. in International Legal Studies from NYU and a joint J.D./M.A. in International Affairs from the University of Ottawa and Carleton University’s Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.
CCIJ hosts an articling student – a recent law graduate undertaking a mandatory 10-month paid placement before formally joining the profession. Through a Public Interest Articling Fellowship, the Law Foundation of Ontario has funded five years of articling positions at CCIJ (2013 to 2018).
CCIJ hires interns from time to time. Interns complement the work of CCIJ’s core team through part-time and volunteer support with casework, client support, project evaluation, accounting, web and database development, and communications. They are mentored by members of the CCIJ team while gaining valuable professional experience.
