I was attracted to the Brookes LLM because of the wide range of modules on offer and its capacity for improving academic writing, research and legal argument skills. There is a friendly environment between lecturers and students and the diversity of the teaching staff, who are experts from many parts of the world, makes the programme very interesting.

Currently, I'm working in the Legal Directorate at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the government of the Kingdom of Bahrain. The knowledge and the skills I acquired on the LLM programme have had a significant and positive impact on my career, enabling me to participate more effectively and efficiently in the international and regional conferences and meetings which I attend as a diplomat.

This knowledge has also helped me to build and enhance the relationships between my country and important international judicial bodies such as the Permanent Court of Arbitration and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, and to understand and advise my country on many contemporary issues, such as the right of states to obtain nuclear energy for peaceful programmes and the international legal regime governing such a right.
