Hauwa Ibrahim: The Impact of CAIL's Academy
This episode of Partners in Justice features the riveting story of Hauwa Ibrahim, a Nigerian human rights lawyer known for her work defending people condemned under the Islamic Sharia laws in force in northern Nigeria. Throughout her career, she has defended over 150 cases involving women sentenced to death by stoning and children sentenced to amputation of limbs under Sharia law. Hauwa joins The Center for American and International Law's president, T.L. Cubbage, for a conversation in which she reminisces on her participation in CAIL's Academy of American and International Law and examines how it changed her career trajectory. She also speaks on her most recent work, "Mothers without Borders," a project that taps into the "soft power of mothers" to modify the structure of injustices to keep children from extremism and fundamentalism. About the Academy of American and International Law: When attorneys from other countries attend CAIL's Academy of American and International Law, they return to their home countries with a new legal mindset, setting off a ripple effect that influences their immediate legal community and impacts the people they serve. Since 1964, the Academy has attracted over 3,300 participants from 121 countries. Past participants have become President of the General Assembly of the United Nations, Prime Minister of Peru, Chief Justice of the Philippines, Chief Justice of Italy's Court of Cassation, and much more.
