Anika Gray Anika


Anika has been at Northwestern Pritzker School of Law since June 2023. She has a rich array of gender, diversity and inclusion experiences spanning the public and private sectors in the U.S. and the Caribbean. She was the Gender and Inclusion Specialist for the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) where she advised and supported regional Chief Justices as well as the President of the CCJ to develop gender-responsive programs and policies for the judiciary, including the development of specialised sexual offences courts and gender sensitivity training and protocol for judges. She has also worked for the World Bank Group in Washington DC, advising private sector clients on the business case for investing in gender and with the UN, developing programs to improve women’s economic empowerment and prevent and respond to gender-based violence.

Anika began her legal career with Aids-Free World, where she carried out strategic litigation focusing on dismantling homophobic laws impacting on LGBTQ+ rights in Jamaica and other Caribbean countries. For example, she produced part of the legal submission for Caleb Orozco v Belize (the first case from the English-Speaking Caribbean to challenge the constitutionality of a sodomy law) and was counsel in the first Jamaican case (Tomlinson v TVJ and CVM) to bring a constitutional claim against Jamaica’s three television stations, which had refused to air an ad promoting tolerance towards LGBTQI+ people. In her role as Caribbean Advocacy Advisor for Outright International, she also worked on improving the policy and legislative environment for LGBTQ+ people. Additionally, she worked with the Independent Commission of Investigations (INDECOM) in Jamaica providing legal opinions on whether members of the police should face criminal sanctions for extra-judicial actions perpetrated against civilians.  

Anika earned a Bachelor of Laws (LL. B) from the University of West Indies, a Master of Public Policy (MPP) from the University of Oxford, and a Master of Law ( LL.M) from Harvard Law School. She is also a 2014 Chevening Scholar.
