New lawyer has passion for criminal law


Madana Rampersaud, who is passionate about public prosecution and criminal law, was on Tuesday admitted to the local bar to practice law.

Rampersaud’s petition to practice was presented to Justice Gino Persaud at the High Court by Attorney General Anil Nandlall.

The 26-year-old former youth Parliamentarian acquired his Bachelor of Laws degree at the University of Guyana before moving on to the Hugh Wooding Law School and completed his studies on September 16, 2022. He now works at the office of the Directors of Public Prosecution.

“The path to succeed is uncomfortable; we were courageous enough to step out of our comfort zones to be able to succeed,” Rampersaud said.

While presenting his petition, Nandlall pointed out that it is important to note that young people are serving within the public sector, a move that he said is not often chosen by young people.

Asked about this, Rampersaud said he intends to work with his fellow youths to create attractive remuneration packages for jobs within the public sector. He said there is a need for young people in the public offices.

He said he is excited to put his learning into practice while at the DPP in the best interest of the country.

Further, the young man will continue his studies in criminal law.
