Joshua Lam is a Canadian lawyer who tries to think deeply about global issues in human rights, international justice, peace-building, and sometimes indulges in less important philosophical mental gymnastics. Currently, he works for Pro Bono Law Alberta, an organization building better Access to Justice in Alberta. In his spare time, he also serves as the Director of the Homeless Legal Advocacy Program at Calgary Housing & Employment Services, where he is focused on building better legal supports for the homelessness-serving sector.
Previously, he spent over a year working with the Kenyan Section of the International Commission of Jurists, living in Nairobi. He worked with ICJ Kenya in their International Cooperation Programme, focusing mainly on International Criminal Justice issues and promoting the work of the International Criminal Court around the East African region. The experience left him with an overabundance of passion for international justice, conflict, peace, and security issues.
