Student Profiles

Judith Ngozichinyere Onwubiko

LLM Ambassador

"My name is Judith Ngozichinyere Onwubiko. I am a Dispute Resolution Specialist and a Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. I was admitted to the Nigerian Bar in 2014 and have since worked with the Department of Public Prosecutions, Ministry of Justice, Enugu State, Nigeria.
I obtained my Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree from the Kent Law School in 2013. I am studying the Master of Laws (LLM) with Specialization in International Law with Medical Law and Ethics. I chose to return to Kent because during my undergraduate studies I experienced, first-hand, the Kent Law School’s critical approach to the study of law. This helped me stand out at the Nigerian Law School and in my legal practice. I believe that this is what I still need for my post-graduate studies and for the future.
I am interested in International Human Rights Law, especially as it relates to the human rights of women. I chose to specialise in International Law with Medical Law and Ethics because, while practicing law in Nigeria I observed certain problems in the Nigerian legal system that adversely affect the rights of Nigerians, especially Nigerian women. I was particularly drawn to issues relating to medical negligence and malpractice, as this has caused the death of several women and children. I believe that the combined Kent LLM will equip me with the knowledge and skill needed to positively influence the law in this area."

Mathilde Formet

LLM Ambassador

"I did a European LLB in Paris for three years to study French, English, Spanish, European and International laws with visiting professors from various countries. Through my degree and thanks to internships in law firms and in a charity organization, I have found my vocation: medical law and ethics. Following the purpose of my LLB, I really wanted to study abroad and even more in England, regarding the reputation of its universities, its teaching methods and its peculiar approach of the law, especially in my area of interest. After looking at the different programmes, the one proposed by Kent Law School appeared to me as evidence: it fits perfectly with my expectations combining medical law and ethics, two areas closely related and which seem to me inseparable. I was also attracted by the international dimension of this university and its campus with a lot of facilities, located in the countryside near the lovely city of Canterbury. So I am here for one year, studying the full-time LLM in Medical Law and Ethics, focusing on important issues which are medical practice and malpractice, consent to treatment, death and dying, reproduction and the beginning of life, privacy and data protection law and the foundations of the English legal system, in order to enrich my legal background to deal with such concerns."
