I completed my LLB, with honours, at the University of Warwick in 2012, and then my LLM at the University of Bristol in 2013. I additionally undertook work as a Legal Assistant during my studies. The LLM was focused on international law, and my dissertation focused on the effects of the exhaustion of domestic remedies rule on individual applications alleging torture to the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights. During completion of the LLM, I additionally took part in the John Davis project.
After the completion of my LLM, I was offered a position as a Visiting Lecturer at the University of The Gambia, through the Bristol Human Rights Implementation Centre. At the University of the Gambia, I lectured Contract Law, Tort Law and Legal Ethics. Additionally I was a member of the University of The Gambia Working Group on Academic Affairs engaged in improving the legal curriculum and working practices at the University, and a personal tutor to a number of first year students.
Currently I am a teaching associate and PhD candidate at the University of Birmingham. My doctoral research is focused on the exhaustion of domestic remedies in the context of individual applications of torture to the Human Rights Committee, under the Optional Protocol to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.
