Recent Law alum looking for job opportunities...

I have just completed the New York State bar examination and am awaiting
the results. Having received an LLM from Columbia Law School and an LLB
from the London School of Economic, I am seeking a position as a legal
associate in a New York office with the hope of engaging in
international arbitration in the future.=20

My prior experience includes conducting extensive legal research for the
Legal and Constitutional Unit of the Center for Policy Alternatives. I
am able and willing to learn new tasks quickly, as can be seen from my
previous work experience. For example, I had no prior knowledge of
program and grant management when I took up the post of program manager
at The REVIVE Project, but was quickly given significant responsibility
in that role. Academically, I was the youngest student in my LLM program
at Columbia Law School.

I have always enjoyed challenging experiences. REVIVE was an intensive
livelihood rehabilitation project that strove to restore 29,000 micro
businesses in six tsunami- affected districts in Sri Lanka. The project
was given a limited period of one and a half years to achieve its goals.
This placed immense pressure on the project staff, as we had to deliver
on very tight deadlines. The nature of the programs was constantly
changing and with it our task requirements, all the while requiring
overall management of the projects. It is these kinds of challenges that
I seek in a job.=20

While I was born in the United States, I have spent my childhood in
Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and the United Kingdom. I enjoy new experiences
and look forward to my next challenge here. My resume is available upon
request and I can be contacted at 937 3694452 or via email on

Transition from old list server

At the end of April we will be discontinuing the AFLSE New York City
Chapter list server and replacing it with the AFLSE New York Chapter
Newsletter delivered from the AFLSE web site using our registered user

If you receive this posting as a list server posting AND a Newsletter to
the same e-mail address then New York is your registered primary chapter
affiliation. No action is required by you to continue to receive the New
York Newsletter in the future.

If you receive this letter as a list server posting BUT NOT a Newsletter
then you either have initial registration with another city chapter OR
we have no indication of your geographic location because we do not have
your home or office address. Please see troubleshooting section below
for action you should take.

If you have made posting to the List Server, we appreciate your
announcements and would ask that you address any future contributions to for future posting to the NY AFLSE Newsletter.

We anticipate this will be more efficient for AFLSE members who will
only have to update e-mail addresses in one place and will save AFLSE
from the cost of maintaining two databases. Other chapters will see the
introduction of newsletters next month. We want to make this transition as smooth as possible. If you have any
concerns or issues, please e-mail

Thank you for your past and future support of the AFLSE.

Chapter Newsletter Editor


If you receive this letter as list server posting BUT NOT a Newsletter
You can check your status by logging in to the web site and typing in the top bar of the web page and reviewing
which group you have been initially been assigned to. =20

* If you are a member of the "no chapter affiliation" group and
you want New York to be your chapter, you should join the New York group
on line and you will start to receive the Newsletter.

* If you have your primary chapter designation at another chapter
and you still want to receive the New York Newsletters, you can join the
New York group in addition. This will allow you to receive newsletters
from your primary chapter and New York.

If you receive this posting as a List server AND a Newsletter to
different e-mail addresses and the Newsletter e-mail arrived at the
address you want to use in the future, no action is required by you to
continue to receive the New York Newsletter. If the List server e-mail
is the correct address for future newsletters, then you will need to log
on and change the e-mail address on your profile.

If you receive this letter as a Newsletter BUT NOT as a list server
posting then you do not need to take any action, unless you do not wish
New York to be your only chapter. If you wish to eliminate receiving New
York newsletters and/or add another chapter, then please add or
eliminate the required chapter groups at
