After completing the LLM in international human rights law at Cambridge University, she undertook international human rights work and teaching on behalf of Parkdale Community Legal Services (PCLS) and the Canadian Council for Refugees, appearing before the UN Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights when Canada was examined by the Committee in May of 2006. In 2009, Sadoway received an award for teaching excellence from Osgoode Hall Law School. In addition to casework supervision and training of the Osgoode law students involved in the intensive poverty law program at Parkdale Community Legal Services, she appears regularly at the Immigration and Refugee Board and the Federal Court on behalf of PCLS clients. She has also argued as an intervener at the Ontario Court of Appeal and in the Supreme Court of Canada as counsel for the Metro Action Committee on Violence Against Women and Children in the sponsorship debt recovery case of Mavi et al v.
