  • What are some of the challenges that you faced coming up in your career, and how did you tackle them?
  • What advice do you have for people, particularly women, who are embarking on a career in international law?

  • Michelle Jarvis, Deputy Head, International, Impartial and Independent Mechanism on Syria (IIIM)
