What Kamal liked about Huntsman was its balance between practical skills and traditional liberal arts courses, constantly exposing him to many different subjects. Unlike the linear progression of most single-degree options, Huntsman challenged him by allowing him to take advanced coursework on a multitude of subjects in several languages all at once. However, despite the demanding coursework, he still had room in his schedule for social events and extracurricular activities. The two he remembers most fondly are being a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity and serving on the Wharton Dean's Undergraduate Advisory Board (WAB). 

After college, he worked for Oliver Wyman as a consultant for four years.  During that time he lived in Istanbul, Sydney, New York City and London. Later, while attending Georgetown Law School in DC, he held an externship at the Federal Trade Commission. Kamal also interned with several prominent law firms in NYC and DC. He conducted two consulting engagements in Sarajevo for the War Crimes Court there, as well as worked for the New York Legal Assistance Group on impact litigation. He served as Executive Articles Director on the Georgetown Law Journal, and after graduating with honors, as a law clerk for the Honorable Donald F. Parsons, Jr. of the Delaware Court of Chancery.

Kamal is now in the corporate department at Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, where he is working on a variety of domestic and international corporate transactions. He is also involved in a number of pro bono cases, including a client providing midwife services in Africa, another trying to start an organic farming cooperative in Africa, and another, assisting handicapped children in South India.  Working, living and traveling abroad - exciting prospects to Kamal as a freshman in college - are now interwoven in the fabric of his life.
