What was your most memorable moment at Maryland Carey Law?
Could be the graduation. Yet to come.
Finish this sentence: I could not have gotten through my LLM without…
the support from most of the professors.
Who are your mentors? How have they impacted your journey?
Mentors system did not place properly to 2019 batch. It is a good system, unfortunately at the last minute it worked, thanks to SBA President Kaitlin.
What did you learn about yourself at Maryland Carey Law?
I studied all Bar Exam subjects. Studying US Laws was a real challenge to me. My first law degree was in 1983-1986. Sri Lankan laws are based on English Law and by looking at US Laws one could say that no much different to Sri Lankan Laws or English Laws what we practice in Sri Lanka. But the challenge is that; what my mind says about good law for 30 years is not 100% good law now in the United States. Therefore, it was a real struggle to take off bad laws from my mind and fill with new good laws. I got real good support from some professors to clear my mind many times.
Who was your favorite professor and why?
1. Professor Maureen Sweeney : Always available for me and helped me to structure my resume when I was struggling with the professor who were undertaken to do it officially for most of students.
2. Professor Monopoli : She is best in every aspect you name how a good professor could be.
3. Professor Moon : When some professors made simple things worst for students to understand, Professor Moon is doing a great job by letting students to understand the business law as how it is.
What was your favorite class and why?
Obviously I like the first semester Dean Edward’s class for the simple reason that all LLM students were in that class and one and only class all LLM’s were together. Thereafter LLM’s were separated in to their chosen classes and in some classes I was all alone with all first years or other JD students. I hope university will organize separate classes for LLM’s in future as we LLM’s agreed among ourselves that we would have been much better if we had all classes separately taught only for LLM students.
