Onwudiwe graduates Harvard Law School with accolades
Memme Onwudiwe ’15 graduated from Harvard Law School (HLS) in the spring with a variety of accolades and achievements. Born in Xenia, Ohio, to Nigerian and Ghanaian parents, Memme served as president of the Harvard African Law Association. During his time at OWU, he worked on the OWU Technology Committee; this experience contributed to his selection as class representative on the HLS IT Steering Committee, in which position he helped to organize and co-chair HLS’s first Legal Technology Symposium. Last summer, he worked for Ropes & Gray law firm on the prestigious Roscoe Trimmier Jr. Diversity Scholarship. He served as the Class of 2019 representative on former Dean Martha Minow’s HLS Task Force on Academic Community and Student Engagement. During his first year of law school, he was also runner-up in the American Bar Association’s Haiku Contest for Law Students. Most recently, Memme has spent significant time in his role as executive vice president of Evisort, a Harvard Law-MIT startup that is changing the way lawyers manage contracts, using artificial intelligence to sort through and organize material efficiently. As the culmination of his many contributions to the HLS community, Memme was awarded the Dean’s Award for Community Leadership, which recognizes graduating students who contribute time and energy to making Harvard Law School better through involvement in student organizations, community service groups, and individual efforts. He’s one of several alumni scheduled to return to campus in October to participate in the Sagan National Colloquium, which will focus on all the ways that OWU alumni are actively working to change the world.
