It is our great pleasure to introduce our new IntLawGrrls contributor Lara Miriam Ibrahim. Lara is a recent Bachelor of Laws graduate from The University of Sheffield. She graduated at the top of her cohort, and has received a full scholarship to study her LLM specialising in International Law and Global Justice at the same institution. During her undergraduate degree, Lara spent a year at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, where she furthered her knowledge on International Law, particularly from a gendered perspective.
She is currently working with two NGOs, before the start of her LLM, as well as continuing to volunteer pro bono for destitute asylum seekers in the UK. Her interests lie in International Refugee Law, International Criminal Law and Human Rights, and her aspirations are to work within these areas in the future.
