Queen Mary University of London, is one of the largest educational institutions in London. There are five Nobel Laureates amongst Queen Mary's alumni and current and former staff. Its library (one of the biggest libraries in London) and the School of Law are well resourced and rich. Its Centre for Commercial Law Studies is one of the best in Europe. Queen Mary is the best higher education institution in the East End (East of London). I was fortunate to spend nearly four years at Queen Mary while studying undergraduate (LLB Hons) and postgraduate law (LLM) degrees at the University of London (as an external LLM student, I continued using Queen Mary library extensively). While studying law at Queen Mary, I was fortunate to come into close touch with some of the leading academics in the world. From them, I learned how to read and analyse law, and write on legal issues, from critical point of view. Some of those leading academics are: Professor Roger Cotterrel, Professor Geraldine Van Bueren QC (currently a visiting fellow at Oxford) who had drafted the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child and the UN Rules for Juveniles Deprived of their Liberty, Professor Genevra Richardson (formerly at the Centre for Socio-Legal Studies in Oxford and now Professor at King’s), Professor Hilarie Barnett and Professor Katherine O'Donovan. They are recognised as leading experts by both UK government and the UN. Their books (i.e. the then Dean Professor Cotterrel’s 'Politics of Jurisprudence', my personal tutor Professor Hilarie Barnett’s 'Constitutional & Administrative Law') are used as text books in leading universities of the world. Some of them were appointed as experts by the UN and the UK government in different time to report back on certain issues. My time at Queen Mary was my best time of my life. I feel proud of and in-debt to Queen Mary and those leading experts.
I was called to the Bar (Barrister-at-Law) by the Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn in 1999. I was also admitted as a Solicitor in the Supreme Court of England and Wales having secured Grade ‘A’ and enrolled as an Advocate of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh. I am currently a Member of the Dhaka Bar and the Bangladesh Supreme Court Bar Association and a Fellow (FCIArb – the highest grade) of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb).
Having led various organisations at senior level in the past, I have gained advanced management skills, qualification and experience. I was awarded Fellowship (FCMI – the higher grade) by the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) as a leading professional in environmental health and safety law. I achieved the highest grade (FRSPH) of the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) and am currently the Proprietor/Head of my reputed legal practice named 'Lincoln’s Chambers Solicitors'.
