Bio of Mr. Victor Gbodo Yisa:
Victor Yisa holds a Law degree from the University of Jos in Nigeria. He specialized in corporate legal practice and worked for Multi-National Corporations in Nigeria. He has a flair for criminal law and did extensive pro bono cases for numerous defendants who did not have the resources to defend themselves, since the legal system in Nigeria does not appoint counsel to accused persons as of right. Victor is currently an LLM student here in the International and Comparative Law track. Victor’s passion is a yearning desire to assist the less privileged. He heads a nonprofit organization called Vision Center International (VCI). VCI is dedicated to eradicating avoidable blindness and promoting the health, welfare and education of the blind and visually impaired in developing countries.
