I am Cassio Mosse and I am a Brazilian lawyer. I completed my studies at Queen Mary in 2015 (Intellectual Property Law Master’s degree) and I am very happy and proud to be a part of the Queen Mary alumni community. I immediately felt the importance of the degree as I had doors open to me and the opportunity to work in a prominent IP Law firm in Central London, where I completed work experience as a foreign-qualified lawyer. I then returned to Sao Paulo, Brazil, and a while after, I started my own business, a boutique Intellectual Property law firm.
I also launched three books, one on IP Law and the Brazilian Internet Law, and two others focused on Fashion Law, using as its core the thesis I prepared during my studies at Queen Mary. Also, for the past years, I have attended the International Trademark Association Annual Meetings worldwide, where I met with some fellow Queen Mary alumni and heard very positive feedback from worldwide colleagues in regards to the degree I obtained in London.
All these achievements are closely related to my experience in London as part of Queen Mary: the academic excellence, the challenges, and the many skills in which we were trained have continued to play a constant role in my daily life after the course. The prestigious degree has also helped me to get invitations to be a lecturer in Brazil on various IP courses.
Finally, the sense of community built within the student body is something to be mentioned, and the personal relationships I had with fellow students are already developing to professional co-working opportunities.
On a personal note, I know how challenging it is to be a prospective student and to prepare yourself to seek a degree in the UK. Many documents are needed; financial, professional and family arrangements often have to be done. This may represent countless sleepless nights and hours of organisation, and being in touch with a Queen Mary Alumni is certainly of importance, as we do have many useful hints and information, from our own personal experiences to share.
In this sense, I would be more than happy to respond to any queries from prospective and current Queen Mary students from Brazil, in order to help them to have an experience as joyous I had.
