Kareem Carryl is an associate in the Election and Political Law, Institutional Culture and Social Responsibility, and White Collar Defense and Investigations practice groups at Covington & Burling LLP.

Kareem joined Covington after graduating cum laude from Harvard Law School. While at Harvard, he worked at the United States Senate and engaged in clinical work focused on voting rights. He also served as the President of the Board of Student Advisers, a student organization responsible for providing several essential services to the Harvard Law School community for over 100 years. As President, he oversaw the organization’s core functions, which include serving as teaching assistants in the First Year Legal Research and Writing Program, as mentors to the first-year class, and as administrators of the Ames Moot Court Competition. Archives suggest he is the first Black man elected President of the organization. He received the Frank S. Righeimer, Jr., Student Prize for Citizenship in recognition of his service to the law school community.

Prior to attending Harvard Law School, Kareem worked at J.P. Morgan alongside a team responsible for advising individuals, families, and foundations on a range of wealth management matters. He joined J.P. Morgan as a member of the Thomas G. Labrecque Smart Start Scholarship Program, a four-year full-tuition scholarship and internship program for New York City high school students.
