Wiley Manuel Bar Association



Lovia Ofori-Ampofo grew up in Ghana and moved to America when she was eight. During her 2L year, Lovia was a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (“DEI”) fellow for Deans Simmons and Levine at McGeorge School of Law. Through her position, Lovia worked on issues that adversely affect underrepresented students, such as microaggression, imposter syndrome, and policy. Lovia wrote an article on Dean Schwartz’s blog titled “Law Schools Incorporate More DEI Work into Their Curricula,” in which Lovia spoke of how equal education can be achieved in law school. In the article, Lovia said that professors must incorporate DEI into their current curricula and not retraumatize the community they seek to educate the larger population on. Lovia is writing another article with Omar Shehabi, a JSD candidate at Yale School of Law, regarding Qatar’s Kafala System (modern-day slavery). Lovia is a 3L at McGeorge School of Law.
