As well as being a trustee, Sue works for a Belgian NGO specialising in international human rights law which focuses on ending impunity and the representation of indigenous groups in Latin America.
She has undergraduate and postgraduate law degrees from University College London and is a member of the Bar of UK and New York where she worked from 1986 as US general counsel to the Man Group, an international trading company.
