Natalie Druce
Transitional Justice Scholar

Natalie Druce holds a Bachelor of Laws (with honors) and Bachelor of International Studies (with distinction) from the University of New South Wales. Natalie is pursuing a Traditional LLM at NYU.

Prior to commencing her LLM, Natalie worked as a solicitor in the disputes practice at Herbert Smith Freehills and as a Judicial Clerk to the Honourable Justice Margaret Beazley AO, then President of the New South Wales Court of Appeal. During law school, Natalie focused on international human rights and anti-discrimination law. She was a student intern in the UNSW Human Rights Clinic, where she co-authored a guide on migrant worker rights under international law. She currently sits on the legal advisory committee of the International Center for Advocates Against Discrimination (ICAAD) and co-leads a Sydney-based organization that facilitates legal education workshops for young people at risk of homelessness.

Natalie developed a particular interest in transitional justice while interning in the Governance and Legal team at the United Nations Global Compact, where one of her projects involved coordinating a webinar on applying a gender lens to responsible business practices in conflict-affected areas. She hopes to explore how transitional justice practices can be used to conceptualize and respond to the specific harms perpetrated against minority groups, including Indigenous communities.
