Amy is an international and human rights law researcher with a particular interest in judicial capacity building in Africa. Since completing her undergraduate law degree with honours at the Australian National University in 2013, she has worked as a clerk and legal researcher at all levels of domestic legal systems. From the Canberra Magistrates Court, to the Western Australian Supreme Court to the Supreme Court of Appeal of South Africa, she has accumulated rare insights into the intellectual, administrative and political inner workings of courts. In 2018 she will graduate with an LLM in international law from the University of Cape Town, and be admitted as an attorney in Australia. She is currently building up the AfricanLII domestic and international human rights case law collection, with the aim of making AfricanLII the most comprehensive, accessible and trusted source for African human rights research for the judiciary, practitioners, academics and students alike.
