Gloria joined the Center for Global Justice (CGJ) as a student staff member, working on legal projects for our partner organizations.
In 2016, Gloria served as a CGJ intern with the Land and Equity Movement of Uganda (LEMU), an organization that uses law and politics to bring change to Uganda by stimulating debate about land tenure and helping to protect the land rights of the vulnerable population in Uganda. Gloria conducted legal research on land grabbing, edited policy briefs, and even attended a mediation.
In 2017, Gloria interned with Advocates International South Africa, working to combat abortion, promote religious freedom, regulate pornography, and protect the poor.
This fall, Gloria will return to Uganda as a fellow to work with the Office of Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP), the equivalent of the United States Attorney General. Gloria will assist the DPP in prosecuting cases of child sacrifice, thinking about how to create a juvenile division, and reviewing the relatively new plea bargaining initiative, which has been directly responsible for ensuring that children do not languish in prison beyond the terms of their sentences.
Gloria will be following in the footsteps of one of the first two CGJ fellows, Chelsea Mack. Chelsea has been working with the DPP since fall 2017 when the Center for Global Justice Fellowship Program first began. Through this program, Regent Law graduates are able to work for one year with one of the Center’s partner organizations fully funded by the Center.
