May 9, 2023

The Department of Legal Studies is glad to announce that our student Sumesh Shiwakoty recently traveled to Nashville, Tennessee, to participate in the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U) annual meeting. His project RakshyaKawach, Nepal’s first women’s safety, and women empowerment mobile phone app, is accepted by the CGI U this year. As a CGI U fellow, Sumesh traveled to this fully funded annual meeting, where he met with President Bill Clinton, Secretary Hilary Clinton, Vice Chair of Clinton Foundation Dr. Chelsea Clinton, and current US Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, among other dignitaries. Sumesh was further selected for a private roundtable with President Bill Clinton, where he got to interact with President Clinton in a more intimate setting. Sumesh shares his gratitude to the CEU community and the Department of Legal Studies for their support, especially to his winter term Professors Tibor Tajti, András Sajó, Csongor István Nagy, and Michael Ignatieff.
