He is a member of the American Law Institute and is an adviser on the ALI Project on “Intellectual Property: Principles Governing Jurisdiction, Choice of Law, and Judgments in Transnational Disputes.” He has also served as the Intellectual Property Section Editor of the Australian Business Law Review.
Professor Murumba has been actively involved in the mission of several international human rights organizations. He was honored in 2009 for his service to Human Rights Watch. He serves on their board’s Policy Committee and the advisory boards of the Women’s Rights Division and the Africa Division. He has also served as a member of the Committee on Human Rights of the New York City Bar and is an Advocate of the High Court of Uganda and of its subordinate courts.
