Lavanga Wijekoon ’04 came to IWU as an international student from Sri Lanka. Now an attorney at an international law firm in Chicago, he advises and represents multinational employers. Recently, he has participated in negotiations for a business and human rights treaty at the United Nations. He also represents pro bono asylum seekers and “Dreamer” applicants. As a speaker for Homecoming 2017’s Back to College Classes, Lavanga shared his thoughts on how IWU – his friends, professors, and work-study at Saga – prepared him for his career, and how he met his wife-to-be on a May Term class. His presentation, entitled “From the SAGA Dishroom to International Law Firm: A Former International Student’s Reflections”, may be viewed below.

Congratulations, Lavanga!
