He qualified as a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria and practiced law in Melbourne, Australia.[1] He then received his S.J.D. from Harvard Law School, where he served as a MacArthur Scholar at the Harvard Center for International Affairs and a Senior Fellow in the Graduate Program. He was an intern for the International Monetary Fund in Washington, D.C.[3]

Anghie worked as a research assistant for C.G.
