Julie Ada


Julie Ada is a PhD student at the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Law. After a few years in law school in South Africa, she completed her first LLM at the University of Cape Town (South Africa) specialized in International Human Rights Law, followed by a second LLM at McGill University specialized in Comparative law. She is the recipient of a handful of scholarships, notably: the Joseph-Armand Bombardier Scholarship and a 3-year Center for International Governance Innovation (CIGI) PhD scholarship in International Law.

Her particular interest lies in policy reforms and projects that seek to develop strategies to address social issues affecting women and girls, with a specific focus on the intersections of gender, culture, equality and the law. Julie’s published work has touched on such topics like human rights, legal pluralism, harmful traditional practices and feminisation of culture and religion. Besides her scholarly pursuits, Julie practices part-time at a local law firm as a family, child protection and immigration lawyer.
