1 hour of in-person CLE credit available, pending approval

Judge Kimberly Prost, United Nations Security Council Ombudsperson for the Al Qaida Sanctions Committee will present a lecture, titled “A Reflection on Innovations in the Security Council: The International Tribunals, Counter Terrorism and the Office of the Ombudsperson.” The lecture should be of great value to lawyers interested in the mechanisms and legal authorities employed by the Security Council in interdicting and punishing international crimes and terrorism. In particular Judge Prost will draw from her own experiences as an ad litem judge of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in describing the importance of courts in meting out justice for international criminal acts. She will also describe the unique role played by her office in addressing requests to be removed from the United Nations Security Council’s Al-Qaida Sanctions List. Practicing attorneys will gain insights in the role of international law in prosecuting crimes and terrorism as well as the procedural protections afforded defendants and suspects.
Speaker Information
Kimberly ProstKimberly Prost, Secretary General as Ombudsperson, United Nations Security Council
Al Qaida Sanctions Committee


Graduating as a gold medalist from the University of Manitoba Law School, Ms.Prost worked for the Canadian federal Department of Justice for eighteen years. She served as a federal prosecutor, including with the Crimes against Humanity and War Crimes Section and appeared before all levels of the Canadian courts, including arguing several cases before the Supreme Court of Canada. She was for 10 years with the International Assistance Group, Canada’s central authority for international criminal cooperation matters, serving as Director from 1993 until 2000. In this capacity, in addition to operational and managerial functions, she participated in the negotiation of over 40 extradition/mutual legal assistance treaties and was a member of the Canadian delegation for the negotiation of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, the related Rules of Procedure and Evidence and Elements of Crime, the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and the United Nations Convention against Corruption.

In July 2000, Ms. Prost joined the Commonwealth Secretariat as Head of the Criminal Law Section. There she delivered a range of programs on international cooperation, counter terrorism, implementation of the Rome Statute, and combating organized crime and corruption.

In March 2005, Ms. Prost was appointed to the post of Chief, Legal Advisory Section with the Division of Treaty Affairs within the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime. In that position, she continued to run programs on international cooperation and to provide advice and assistance to states regarding the implementation of the international drug, crime and terrorism conventions.

After election by the General Assembly, in July 2006, she was appointed to sit as an ad litem judge of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia on the trial of seven accused charged in relation to events at Srebrenica and Zepa in 1995. Judgement was delivered in that case in June 2010. She also served as Pre-Trial and Presiding Judge in the case of the Prosecutor v. Tolimir, a self represented accused, during her tenure with the Tribunal.

In June of 2010 Ms. Prost was appointed by the Secretary General as Ombudsperson for the United Nations Security Council Al Qaida Sanctions Committee (1267 Committee). She is currently serving in that position in New York.
