Since his younger years, he has proven to be a focused, result-driven and disciplined individual, whose pursuit for higher education landed him at the Law Faculty, graduating with a Bachelor of Laws with Honours and subsequently proceeded to the Sierra Leone Law School, where he was called to the Bar in 2001. Having the untiring zeal to pursue his studies with the sole aim of contributing to his beloved nation, Sierra Leone, the former Solicitor General pursued a masters degree in Law at the University of San Diego School of Law California, USA.

Mr. Tarawalley is an insightful individual, analytical and critical thinker whose work ethics, independence and integrity has prevailed in his trailblazing career over the years, marking his stellar performance in the profession thereby distinguishing him from others.
