Virtual Law & Leadership Summer Program 2023

We are super excited to bring you the fourth year of Virtual LLSP. Please check back at a later time for updates on when we will begin accepting applications. In the meantime, feel free to explore the website for more information about the program.


Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, this year's program is virtual and will allow both Muslim women and Muslim men to participate. The Virtual Law & Leadership Program ("VLLP") will be based on KARAMAH’s Law and Leadership Summer Program ("LLSP") which is only for Muslim Women. VLLP will provide participants with the fundamental understanding and essential skills needed to lead themselves, their peers, and the movements they are passionate about from a gender-equitable perspective


Past Events


Lifting Every Voice In Religious Freedom

Why do African American perspectives matter when discussing religious freedom? The answers are as simple — and complex — as recognizing an important voice around issues involving religion and as complex as unpacking centuries of bigotry, racism, the legacy of slavery and what it means to be a citizen in the United States.


“Religious Freedom and Gender Equity”

Members of KARAMAH’s Board of Directors along with KARAMAH’s Executive Director presented at the “2020 Muslim Law Symposium: Religious Freedom and Gender Equity,” at the University of the District of Columbia David A. Clarke School of Law.

LLSP 2019

Law & Leadership Summer Program 2019

Thirty-six Muslim women attended the 2019 program and had the opportunity to learn from experts on topics such as Muslim Women’s Rights, Islam and Domestic Violence, Interfaith Relations in Islam and Spiritual Leadership. For some, this program aided in reinforcing their faith in the beauty of Islam, for others, in rediscovering it.

LLSP 2018

Law & Leadership Summer Program 2018

KARAMAH held the highly regarded Law and Leadership Summer Program (LLSP) from July 9th – July 27th, 2018, with thirty-eight attendees, in Washington, DC.

LLSP 2017

KARAMAH Inaugurates the Executive Session of LLSP

In 2017, we introduced our first-ever executive session (“ES”). Because of work and family obligations, three weeks is often difficult for many to accommodate. Also, Muslim women who have advanced in their leadership in the American Muslim community face similar barriers and obstacles. KARAMAH adapted the program with ES to reach more Muslim women leaders.
