IICRD Advisor, Suzanne Williams, is featured in the Spring 2020 issue of In the Spotlight, a publication produced by the Continuing Legal Education Society of British Columbia (CLEBC).
Suzanne shares how her work with IICRD started a lifelong goal of closing the "gap between the law that says children’s views will be heard in decisions that affect them and what actually happens in practice".
As described in the article, Suzanne has continued with this core purpose through her involvement with CLEBC's conferences on Access to Justice for Children as well as through practicing family law in Victoria, British Columbia with Brown Henderson Melbye.
"I have been fortunate to hear from and work with young people from many countries and backgrounds and every time my belief that young people have valuable words to share and contributions to make to better not just them, but all of us, is affirmed." - Suzanne Williams
