Karine Mac Allister appointed CAIJ General Manager!


CAIJ’s Board of Directors is proud to announce the appointment of Ms. Karine Mac Allister as Executive Director.

She succeeds Me Nancy J. Trudel who, after more than 7 years at the head of the organization, has left to take on new challenges. Executive Director of CAIJ since 2016, Me Trudel has skillfully led CAIJ in making the necessary digital shift, consolidating its position in the legal broadcaster market and asserting its unifying role within the legal community. We thank her for all her hard work.

At CAIJ since 2015, Ms. Mac Allister was Head of Training, then Assistant Director of Customer Experience, before being appointed Director of Customer Experience in 2019.

As Executive Director of CAIJ, Ms. Mac Allister will be responsible for planning and coordinating all the organization’s activities and resources. Her human approach, aligned with the progressive vision of the founders and her predecessor, will help increase access to quality legal knowledge. In addition, Ms. Mac Allister will coordinate the implementation of the organization’s strategic and action plans.

“Karine Mac Allister’s appointment as Executive Director of CAIJ follows a rigorous selection process. The Board of Directors and I are convinced that Ms. Mac Allister’s experience and human leadership will enable her to masterfully carry out the mandate entrusted to her, building on CAIJ’s present and past successes. Under the leadership of its new Executive Director, CAIJ will resolutely pursue its mission as a unifying agent of our legal community, dedicated to the development of innovative solutions to the needs of its members, and to the development of access to legal information and access to justice. CAIJ’s experienced team is therefore confidently embarking on the development of a new strategic plan designed to extend its rich legacy into the future”, said Me Alain Ricard, Chairman of CAIJ’s Board of Directors.

Ms. Mac Allister holds a B.A. in International Studies from York University in Toronto and an LL.M. in International and European Law from the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands. She was awarded a mention d’excellence for her doctoral thesis in International Law at the Université de Montréal.

CAIJ, the essential resource for legal knowledge.
