Summary

My undergraduate law degree at University College London invited me to think critically and analytically, and I first became interested in the interplay of private and public law at UCL. I completed a dissertation in the area of medical law, wherein I argued that the regulatory regime legalizing mitochondrial replacement therapy in the United Kingdom was not harmonious with international human rights legal instruments, particularly the Oviedo Convention and European Convention on Human Rights. Moreover, I interned at Eckert Seamans Cherin & Mellot LLC in New York, where I received the opportunity to develop skills in advocacy, in addition to the legal skills I was already developing in academia. I have thus completed a project with Landesa, a non-profit organization that seeks to secure legal rights for disenfranchised people. While working on that project, I engaged with the laws of different countries which protected women and minorities.
