This page is meant to provide certain resources for law students,
particularly in the area of Constitutional Law, International
Law, and Civil Rights issues. I hope that
this page also can assist Muslim Law
students and lawyers in researching
issues and subject matter
pertinent to them.
A Little About Myself
I am currently a criminal prosecutor at the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office, representing the people of Miami-Dade County and the State of Florida in criminal cases before the county and circuit courts. I obtained my J.D. at the American University Washington Collge of Law in Washington, DC in May 2000
My ultimate goal is to eventually become a professor, perhaps teaching either Constitutional Law or Criminal Justice. My other interest is Islamic Law, and I hope to be able to study it more in depth than I have so far.
I was Note and Comment Editor for the Administrative Law Review, the only WCL Journal published in cooperation with the American Bar Association, and the official law journal for the ABA's section on Administrative Law and Regulatory Practice.
During the summer of 1999 I was a Law Clerk with the Office of the Attorney General of Maryland Criminal Appeals Division in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1998, I worked in the Mongomery County Judicial Center as a judicial intern for a Court of Special Appeals Judge. The Montgomery County judicial system has an impressive web site.
