CAIJ team

The CAIJ team is there for you

Over 45 employees at the service of more than 30,000 members

Monitoring and anticipating changes in the practice of law takes energetic people who have your professional interests at heart. Feel free to draw on their knowledge, as well as their tools and services, either online, by telephone, in the co-working library, at the office, in the courthouse or at home. Our team focuses on three areas of expertise: customer experience, legal information and technology.

CAIJ management

The management team pools its wide range of expertise and experience to guide CAIJ’s professionals in developing the best products and services for members.

Ms. Karine Mac Allister, Interim Executive Director

“The development of a unique legal heritage in North America is the strength of our team, which is driven by a human and avant-garde vision of legal information management, client service and andragogy. »

Ms. Mac Allister has been with the CAIJ since 2015, where her previous positions included Training Manager, Assistant Director – Client Experience, before being appointed Director – Client Experience in 2019.

Karine Mac Allister holds a Bachelor’s degree in International Studies from York University in Toronto and a Master’s degree in International and European Law from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. She was the legal coordinator for four years for the BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights in Bethlehem, Occupied Palestinian Territory.

She obtained a mention of excellence for her doctoral thesis in international law at the University of Montreal. Her work is built on a conception of the rule of law at the service of the principle of humanity. More specifically, she studied the crime of population transfer through a jurisprudential analysis. She has supported the need to anchor the interpretation of the crime of population transfer in international human rights law, international humanitarian law and international criminal law in order to strengthen the protection of civilians. She has also taught courses at the Faculty of Law of the Université de Montréal.

What motivates her? The possibility of contributing to the democratization of access to legal information within the profession and, more broadly, to access to justice.

Mr. Dave Hinse, Director—Information Technology

“ Our aim is to have a technological infrastructure providing our members with effective, reliable and secure tools and services. ”

Dave Hinse has over 20 years’ experience in the IT services sector, as well as a proven track record for driving the growth of start-ups, SMBs and large enterprises. An entrepreneur himself, he began designing software, hardware and websites before IT professions even existed. A strong proponent of new technology, he feels that utility and user friendliness take precedence over methods. He firmly believes that every technical problem has its solution.

With his keen eye for detail, Mr. Hinse strives to master all aspects of SaaS (Software as a Service), cloud computing and platform development. His efforts were so successful that the company Primonics Inc., where he served on the management team for over 10 years, was purchased by the U.S. company Securus Technologies. He then joined CloudOps as Director of Managed Services and Operations, and more recently Baseline Telematics as Director of Software and Cloud. At CAIJ, Mr. Hinse is responsible for managing all technological aspects for meeting members’ changing needs.
