Getting to know the MJLH: Rosel Kim, Senior Online Editor

Posted By Rosel Kim 25- Sep. 25, 2012


1. Pourquoi le droit de la santé?

I discovered that health law is a very concrete way to apply my interests in women’s rights and anti-racism, when you’re asking question about who gets (or doesn’t get) access to treatment, or investigating patients’ right to informed consent or privacy rights.

2. What was your favourite MJLH moment?

When Insite Vancouver started following us on Twitter. (You can follow the MJLH @McGill_JLH)

3.  What is the quirkiest thing about McGill law?

There are many, but I think the variety of snack (or dinner) choices at Coffeehouses is always delightful. Every week I live in anticipation guessing what I will encounter: Samosas, pizza slices, tiny meatballs, or pesto in a syringe you squirt directly into your mouth… everything is possible.

4.  Qu’est-ce que vous avez fait cet été ?

J’ai fait un stage au Réseau juridique canadien VIH/SIDA (Canadian HIV/AIDS Legal Network, I researched various issues including prisoners’ access to health care, sex workers’ rights, and the human rights implications of the newest HIV prevention strategy, Treatment as Prevention.

5. What are you doing when you’re not at the journal or at law school?

I occasionally write book reviews for the Montreal Review of Books ( and try to discover Montreal’s best cheap dining spots.
