Mohammad Shouman for 2L Day Senator
I would like to connect with each and every one of you to help you pursue professional ambitions that you are passionate about.
I have enjoyed representing students throughout my prelaw university years. For example, I was a twice elected vice president of my graduate-student association, a dodgeball intramurals team captain, and a cofounder of the Women in Engineering Club. Furthermore, I authored the constitutions of two newly formed societies in undergraduate and graduate schools.
Throughout my time at GW Law, I have been actively engaged with deans, faculty members, and staff to address suggestions and inquiries on behalf of my peers, and I have made every effort to connect students with the resources they need to succeed. My commitment to representing the school and students are also reflected in my involvement with the Student Ambassador Program (Professor Liaison Committee), the Dean’s Town Hall Meeting, and the 1L Focus Group.
Furthermore, I have a strong appreciation of the dynamics of different law-school groups: I have been an active member in law-school societies that are newly formed (e.g., the Iraqi Refugee Assistance Project), well established (e.g., the Human Rights Law Society), and active off-campus (e.g., GW Law’s Gulf Recovery Network).
As a 2L Senator, I pledge to do the following:
1.Listen and substantively respond to you within 48 hours.
2.Represent your voice during Senate meetings.
3.Take my role seriously. I will not miss Senate meetings, and will explore how such meetings can be more accessible to the public.
I am tremendously fond of The George Washington University Law School, and as such want to take my commitment to the school to the next level!
