Why did you choose Queen Mary for your postgraduate study?
The LLM in International Economic Law at QMUL appealed to me since I was interested in a more inter-disciplinary focus to my studies, which this programme offers by taking a legal perspective on economic issues and institutions. The reputation of the law school as one of the best LLM providers, the incredible range of modules available to me, and the flexibility in designing a programme that would best suit my interests and future ambitions made this my top choice.
Apart from the modules themselves, I was given the opportunity to conduct research for a professor during my degree, enabling me to further discuss and explore the issues raised in class. I also attended networking events and guest lectures that were offered by the university. This includes learning first-hand about the international organisations, and in particular the international financial institutions involved in the development sphere. I also attended lectures outside my specialism; especially memorable was a series comparing the genocide in Sudan with that in Burma. This inspired me to think about the intersection of conflict and trade, and this is an area I would like to explore further and work with in the future."
