What did you do before coming in W&L?
I practiced law in Cameroon, participated as a guest speaker in numerous seminars on humanitarian and human rights issues organized by specialized agencies of the United Nations system such as UNESCO, and UNICEF in Cameroon, Guinea and Senegal.
Why did you choose W&L?
I realized after high school how positively lawyers can affect our lives when we are facing various forms of social challenges. These issues frequently arise out of our relationship with family members, employers, government agents, or business associates. It triggered my decision to study law.
I chose to attend W&L because of the variety of its curriculum, the reputation of its faculty, its small class sizes, and its observance of an honor code system. I understood that the combination of all these factors would allow me to get the best out of the program, and have a better chance to pursue a successful career with international organizations.
Describe your favorite classroom experience.
Contracts was my favorite class. It was a small section class with 17 students. Professor Margaret Howard challenged us extensively throughout the semester. It was very exciting, and caused me to read my material closely before going to class. I was very honored and privileged to be taught Contract law by such an expert.
Who's your favorite professor?
Brian Murchison. He taught me Torts last semester, and this semester I have him for American Public Law Process. His talent is unique, teaching is his vocation, and his ability to master the materials and convey his ideas to students with a certain dose of humor is just phenomenal.
What's your favorite thing about Lexington?
Lexington offers an appropriate environment for learning and studying. The people are very friendly, the city is virtually crime-free, rent is very cheap, and there are no night clubs around.
What's your favorite thing about W&L?
We have access to our faculty at any time, and they devote all the time necessary to address any problems we might have.
What are your plans after graduation?
I will be a guest speaker in a seminar on human rights which is taking place in Cote D'Ivoire during the second half of June.
How will the LL.M program help you achieve your professional goals?
W&L's LL.M program has provided me with the tools I will need to work in the very competitive U.S. legal field.
