Kudos to Katie Gibson, who has won the 2005 Canadian Lawyers Abroad/Avocats canadiens à l'étranger Essay Competition. Ms. Gibson impressed the panel of judges with her response to the question "Does the 'Responsibility To Protect' principle have a basis under international law and should it form part of Canada's foreign policy?"
Ms. Gibson's essay, entitled "The Responsibility To Protect: Is It Time?" is reproduced on the CLA-ACE website, and will be printed in the upcoming edition of the Université de Montréal CLA-ACE Student Chapter's legal journal, Perspectives Légales Internationales/International Legal Perspectives.
Katie Gibson is currently in her second year of McGill law as part of a four-year combined law/MBA program.
