A native of Atlanta, Georgia, he graduated from Howard University before earning his law degree from the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School. While in law school, he held many leadership positions, served as a Teaching Assistant at The Wharton School, and regularly advocated for the successful reintegration of returning prisoners into their family life and our communities. His advocacy led to the publication of an article titled, “Deconstructing Re-entry: Identifying Issues, Best Practices, and Solutions.” Jamil’s article received the Delores K. Sloviter Prize, which is given by Penn Law to the graduating student who prepared the best paper and research project in the field of judicial administration. Since graduating from law school, he has clerked for Judge C. Darnell Jones, II of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, practiced business litigation at an Am Law 100 firm, and advocated on behalf of Georgia voters at a national party.
Jamil regularly speaks on voting rights, volunteers with local organizations centered around voting empowerment, and seeks out related pro bono opportunities.
Outside of the office, he also enjoys cooking, running marathons, and spending time with family.
