Mentorship leads to Fulbright scholarship for alum

Being able to follow in your mentor’s footsteps is something special. For Joshua Sealy-Harrington, JD’13, it’s led him to graduate studies and a prestigious Fulbright scholarship.

The mentor is Jonnette Watson Hamilton, a professor in the Faculty of Law, who, more than 25 years earlier attended Columbia University for her Master of Law and raved about the experience, specifically a course with Patricia Williams, an American legal scholar and a champion of critical race theory.

“Being able to take a class in critical theory with the same professor that my mentor did is really special,” says Sealy-Harrington, who recently co-authored a paper with Watson Hamilton on colour discrimination. “The intersection of race and law is the thread that ties all of these experiences together, and I am really grateful to have this opportunity.”
