Cristina Coc Speaks with Civic Fellows.
Justice Antoinette Moore is a judge in the Criminal Division of the Supreme Court of Belize. She presided over the court in Belize’s capital city from 2014 to the end of 2019. She is currently the judge in the two Southern districts of Belize. In addition to her regular docket, Justice Moore is assigned all “trafficking in persons” trials in Belize.
Prior to being elevated to the bench, Justice Moore was a human rights lawyer who represented juveniles in conflict with the law, women and families, refugees, labour union activists, persons alleging police brutality, and the Maya indigenous communities. Ms Moore also served as the Director of the ABA Rule of Law Initiative in Belize, coordinating judicial and prosecutor training in transnational crime such as money laundering and human trafficking. As director, her work also included advocating juvenile justice reform.
Justice Moore has a Master’s degree in International Human Rights Law from Kellogg College, Oxford University in the UK. She earned her Bachelor of Arts from Lawrence University and her Juris Doctor degree from Loyola University in the United States and later obtained a Legal Education Certificate from the University of the West Indies in Jamaica.
VP Consulting Inc and Twocanview are teaming up to present a dynamic nine-month civics series called “The Civic Fellowship Programme, Birth of a Citizen”.
We will equip our Belizean youths known as Civic Fellows with lifelong learning skills and provide foundational knowledge from across the political ideological spectrum to foster critical thinking and dialogue and inspire a new generation of ethical nation builders.
