Why Warwick?

I studied Feminist Perspectives in Law, Constitutional Law, and Legal Action and Social Change amongst other subjects while at Warwick. The research experience and the academic support at NAWP supplemented my legal training and prepared me for working in a feminist organisation. Even before I had completed the course, I had a job offer to work for Newham Asian Women’s Project, a charity working for women and children escaping domestic violence. Armed with the practical and theoretical knowledge of domestic violence legislations and how they impact on women, I was more than equipped to take up the post of Legal Advisor at NAWP, where I was responsible for advice work as well as policy development.

Where are they now?

The research experience at Warwick came in very handy when a few years later, I was offered the post of Policy Officer at the then Equal Opportunities Commission, (independent non-departmental public body in the United Kingdom, which tackled sex discrimination and promoted gender equality now replaced by the Equality and Human Rights Commission) where I was responsible for managing a research project and developing policy imperatives from the findings.

The Warwick experience certainly prepared me for taking up challenging and fulfilling jobs and the prestigious name of the Law School certainly doesn’t go amiss in my applications and interviews.
