Nicole LaViolette

Irwin Law Inc mourns the death of Nicole LaViolette on 22 May 2015. Nicole was, in the words of Nathalie DesRosiers, dean of law at the University of Ottawa, “a visionary professor.” In February 2015 she received the 2015 Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Conference (SOGIC) Hero Award from the Canadian Bar Association for her outstanding work in defending and promoting the rights of sexual minorities in Canada and around the world. She published extensively in the areas of international human rights, international humanitarian law, and the rights of refugees. She was also an avid cyclist and a tireless promoter of her chosen sport.
