Ambassador Pat Alsup, an Obama appointee, invited me to meet with her at her office early in my Fulbright Specialist work with the Law Clinic in The Gambia. She clearly understood the mission to teach students the law while serving the community. So I asked her to come speak at the law school and she accepted.
On the left, Ambassador Alsup is meeting individually with UTG Law Clinic students. Nearly every student asked her a question. We could have gone on, but I was already making us late for the general seminar upstairs.
The photo on the right is Ambassador Alsup speaking at our general seminar aimed mostly at the Faculty of Law students and staff. The seminar was
