“From my desk in New York I am connected to clients in various duty stations. With plenty of communication tools available, including Skype, WhatsApp and old-fashioned telephone, no one is too far away to have a consultation with me. Whether to answer a quick question or to counsel on a complex matter, I am available. With each client bringing with them their unique set of circumstances, I am constantly challenged to achieve the best possible outcome for every client.”

Mariam Munang, OSLA Legal Officer
