Working with Judge Dow was a life-changing experience. It enriched my perspective on human rights in the international context, specifically in Southern Africa. I researched legal issues and drafted judgments. In the process I gained a deeper understanding of the intricacies of a developing post-colonial African legal system—combining South African Roman-Dutch law, English Common Law, and African Customary Law.
