Earning LL.M degree in Public International Law from QMUL enhanced my understanding of the international criminal law and human rights principles. Moreover, the LL.M program sponsored our class to attend a field trip and legal talks at the International Criminal Court, the ICTY and the ICTR in The Hague, which equipped me with the professional knowledge necessary to take the next step towards a career in the United Nations. Furthermore, studying in multicultural university like QMUL gave me a valuable chance to network and exchange knowledge with prosecutors, judges and legal practitioners from all over the world and helped me to develop a long-lasting relationship with them. Being supported by and connected with a worldwide network of eminent and successful legal practitioners helped me to develop personally and professionally. Studying at QMUL helped me to develop and acquire new learning skills, such as methods of learning, critical thinking, arguing and conducting research. These skills enabled me, upon my return to Egypt, to successfully complete the professional training program for junior judges with honour and now I am qualified to sit on the bench. In addition to successfully completing a professional training on combating cybercrime and dealing with electronic evidence and another professional training on child protection and criminal justice for juveniles provided by UNICEF, and another training on countering human trafficking and smuggling of migrants provided by the International Organization for Migration.
I loved the flexibility of the course with none of the 54 modules being compulsory. This has given me the freedom to explore completely new areas of law whilst still focusing on my specialism. My favourite things about Queen Mary are the large campus, the 24h access to the library and the Graduate Centre reading rooms, and the access to all the other University of London libraries, including the IALS (the biggest law library in London). I also enjoyed all the free activities that London has to offer, including the royal parks and the world-famous museums. Feel free to contact me with any questions about my experience at Queen Mary.
