The Philippe Kirsch Institute is now offering a Membership to those in the legal profession that would like to be part of a community of like-minded professionals who value international justice and human rights.

As an affiliate of the Canadian Centre for International Justice (CCIJ), the Kirsch Institute created this membership in order to bring together CCIJ and Kirsch Institute supporters from across the non-profit, social justice, and legal communities, as well as to create opportunities for international justice oriented professionals to interact with each other and contribute to our justice initiatives. All proceeds from the membership go to the CCIJ and its work.

  • Opportunities to get involved with CCIJ and the Kirsch Institute
