Cindy is entering her third year at the Peter A. Allard School of Law at the University of British Columbia. While in her first year she received the Panvini Scholarship in Law and the Carl H Goldenberg prize for academic achievement. Cindy completed her undergraduate studies at the University of British Columbia where she received a Bachelor of Arts, Honours in philosophy and the Trek Excellence Scholarship for Continuing Students.
Over the past academic year Cindy participated in the International Justice and Human Rights clinic, where she helped research and write a manual on international criminal law (publication pending). She has also spent time volunteering for the Law Students' Legal Advice Program as a clinician. As an undergraduate, Cindy helped coordinate UBC's intramural ice hockey league, which is run entirely by student volunteers.
Cindy is passionate about travel and has spent extended time in South East Asia and Australia. She enjoys cooking, in particular inventing new sauces and cocktails using only the ingredients on hand. In her spare time, Cindy can be found playing soccer, camping, or hiking one of BC's many beautiful trails. Cindy starts her summer articles with us in May.
