I am from Dhaka in Bangladesh, I first heard about Nottingham when my old school friend came to Nottingham and recommended the city to me. I initially attended New College Nottingham to study for a Foundation degree in Law and this enabled me to progress into the second year of the LLB at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). I am now at Nottingham Law School at NTU studying for my LLM. I chose to study in the UK as I think it is the best for law degrees. I chose NLS as it is one of the finest and most prestigious law schools in the UK.
After my LLM I would like to study for a PhD in Law at NTU. Eventually I want to work for an international NGO such as Amnesty International, UN or Human Rights Watch.
One of the best things about the UK is the way in which everyone is so polite, saying 'please' and 'thank-you'. The worst thing is the unpredictable nature of the weather. Although I do love the snow, it is very peaceful.
I got admission into Bayero University Kano in 1988 to study the LLB (Hons) in combined Islamic and Common Law. I graduated in 1992 with the 'Best student of the Faculty of Law (for outstanding Academic performance), Bayero University, Kano; Scholarship Award in 1991". I was then admitted into Nigerian Law School Lagos in November 1992, for my BL. I graduated in November 1993 from Nigerian Law School, Lagos, I was then Called to Nigerian Bar and Supreme Court of Justice to practice law in Nigeria.
My decision to study in the UK began with an invitation by the British Council. This invitation, together with considerable research into the LLM courses available in the UK, really cemented my decision to study here. I chose Nottingham Trent University as I felt that the LLM course would suit my career needs the best. I found the LLM fascinating and it really exceeded my expectations. After finishing the LLM I was inspired to proceed to the PhD programme which I am thoroughly enjoying. The PhD supervisory team are fantastic and really enthusiastic, and their expertise has also helped strengthened my research capabilities in complex fields.
NTU has enabled me to grow personally as well as academically, enabling me to achieve things that I did not think possible, such as being selected as course representative for the LLM for the academic year 2010/2011. I also set up the Nigerian Students Society to cater for the welfare and the future of the Nigerian community in the East Midlands. This was awarded the title of 'Best New Society of the Year' by the student union.
I am forever proud of the esteemed NLS /NTU for the rewarding experience, skills acquired and the very rare opportunities to excel at all levels till date.
