New Doctoral Students
Although the Centre’s graduate student community continues to grow, some have never set foot on campus… until recently. Don’t forget to say hello the next time you’re in!
Laura Acosta Zárate
Laura is a criminal lawyer originally from Bogotá, Colombia. Her research focuses on the study of accountability of combatants recruited by illegal organizations during their childhood. She received her law degree (equivalent to an LL.B.) from Universidad del Rosario (Colombia) and holds a master’s degree in Criminal Justice System from University of Lleida (Spain).
After completing her master’s degree in Criminological Research at the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom), Laura worked for the Special Jurisdiction for Peace, in the investigation of criminal cases associated with the armed conflict in Colombia. Previously, she supported the work of the Office of delegated prosecutors before the Supreme Court of Justice. Here, she took part of the investigation as a law clerk of war crimes and the responsibility of State agents.
CrimSL started the new year with a new staff member. Eunillyne Lazado, CrimSL’s new Communications Coordinator, joined the Centre in January.
Eunillyne is excited to be joining the Centre in a new role. She is a graduate of the University of Toronto Scarborough's Arts Management program with double minors in Music & Culture and Theatre & Performance Studies. In November 2021, Eunillyne received her Master of Education degree from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE/UT) in Adult Education and Community Development.
Eunillyne comes from a wide range of experience, including program coordination in the not-for-profit arts sector, to research and teaching assistantship at the University, to social media and community management with digital marketing agencies.
When she’s not at work, you can find Eunillyne training at one of Toronto’s Olympic weightlifting gyms, or travelling the world.
