Graduating Student Spotlight: George Kamanda

George Kamanda

With commencement just around the corner on Saturday, May 14, CWRU School of Law is featuring a few of our outstanding graduating students. 

Why did you choose CWRU School of Law?

In short—its international law programs and reputation. 

What are you working on right now?

I am currently completing a spring semester capstone at the Anti-Corruption Commission - Sierra Leone. My work is focused on drafting and editing service charters, rule changes, assessing compliance and implementation policy for Ministries, Departments and Agencies, and assisting in reviewing and developing training modules for ethics and integrity in the workplace. I recently presented copies of my books at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation and also at the Office of the President, among many others. 

Favorite class?

Constitutional Law with Professor (Raymond) Ku. His down-to-earth teaching style and understanding of the subject matter stand out. More so for me, he took the time to review my writing assignments and also provided mentoring advice. Notable other professors with similar impact are Professor (Cassandra) Robertson and Professor (Juliet) Kotritsky. 

Advice for incoming first-year law students?

Work hard and network.

What are your post-graduation plans?

I plan to take the DC bar and secure a job.
