A look back…
Claudia Andrea Molina, lawyer has had a keen interest on international law since her third year of law school.

- She was president of the association of exchanged students to Mexico (COLADIC)
She presented a conference on the extraterritorial application of a Canadian law aimed at punishing international sexual tourism, before students and law professors from all over latin america at l’UNAM in Mexico.
Since 1997, Canada adopted a law with an extraterritorial application that allows the Canadian government to sue and punish Canadian citizens that are involved in sexual tourism (Section 7 of the Criminal Code)
Claudia Molina had the opportunity and the chance, as a student, to work on Supreme Court cases while she worked at the Department of Justice in Ottawa, including, notably, one of the most important in Canadian history.
I have always known that I would work in International law. Today, I have a practice that brings me international humanitarian law and international business law cases, two areas of law that are dear to me.
The cabinet offers a personalized service where a client knows that he or she can talk directly to a lawyer, instead of an assistant or another third party, if he or she has questions or worries about his or her case.
