Carolyn McCool, lawyer and human rights advocate passed away on 29 May 2018. Carolyn will be sadly missed by Lawyers’ Rights Watch Canada and many other organizations and individuals who benefited from her contributions and support. Carolyn had been an active LRWC member since 2014. She served as a Director of LRWC, holding the office of Secretary, Monitor of human rights in Turkey and was an inspiring member of the LRWC Intervention Team. In the latter role, Carolyn worked tireless in support of equality and non-discrimination on the LRWC intervention in the Trinity Western University cases recently decided by the Supreme Court of Canada.  Her work as a human rights lawyer left a legacy: her death leaves a gap.
