He is a licensed Advocate and a member of the Indonesian Advocates Association (Peradi) as well as the Rocky Mountain Mineral Law Foundation and the Australian Mining Petroleum Law Association.
Don C. Smith, Director of the Environmental and Natural Resources Law (ENRL) program in which Kasmali studied, said, "Kasmali was a wonderful student and a great person who made many friends while studying in Denver. He was always willing to share his expertise in Indonesian law with students from other parts of the world."
