M.C. and International Appeals

Snell and Wilmer partner M.C. Sungaila wowed the OCBA Appellate Law Section yesterday with tales from her work vindicating women's rights in the Inter-American Court of Human Rights -- work that crossed distinctions between trial and appeal, advocacy and diplomacy, in the pursuit of justice for harrowing crimes against women that had gone unprosecuted.

M.C. discusses the case in this posting on the IntLawGrrls international law blog.  A copy of the Court's 161-page decision for her clients is available at its website.
