Mitchell Hamline student Abdisamed Awed is profiled in the April issue of Attorney at Law Magazine’s Minnesota edition. You can read the entire article on the magazine’s website.
Awed, who goes by AJ, was a toddler when he immigrated with his family to the U.S. to escape civil war in Somalia. Awed hopes to someday return to Somalia after earning his J.D.
“I want to be actively involved in Somalia’s reconstruction,” Awed said in the Attorney at Law profile. “Whether that’s opening up my own company, bringing in investments, working with the government or even the financial sector.”
Now in his second year of law school, Awed is focusing on learning the legal side of the business world with a goal of landing a job in commercial arbitration, dispute resolution, or as in-house counsel for a corporation.
In February, Awed and fellow Mitchell Hamline student Susana Muñoz earned a third place finish in the International Chamber of Commerce Mediation Competition in Paris.
