Elizabeth Evatt

Elizabeth Evatt was the founding chief judge of the Family Court in Australia and former president of the Australian Law Reform Commission. The scope of her international human rights work includes chairing the UN Committee on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW) and being the first Australian elected to the UN Human Rights Committee, spearheading landmark decisions in protecting the rights of women. She is currently a commissioner of the International Commission of Jurists, a body committed to the rule of law and human rights.  It is a true honor that Elizabeth serves not only as a U.K. Trustee but also as a member of the Advisory Board of the Adolescent Girls’ Legal Defense Fund (AGLDF) where her experience and expertise are most valued.
