Adil Ali - Bachelor of Laws

Adil Ali - Bachelor of Laws (LLB)

I am a professional with over 18 years of combined experience in public management consultancy, international business operations management and aviation. My diverse educational and work experience has stimulated a profound interest in the law. I graduated with a Bachelor of Laws (LLB) qualifying law degree in November 2019 and recently embarked on the Legal Practice Course and Master of Laws (LLM) in England as a career change. My work experiences have attracted me to commercial law with a desire to eventually focus upon international aviation and transportation law, of which I am confident that I can be an asset to a leading law firm and by extension the legal fraternity.
I would like to offer insights on my experiences gained in work and study life to current and prospective students, particularly in the fields of business and law. Having studied without institutional support while transitioning to life in a new country, I have formulated study and personal strategies which enable a non-UK person to grasp fundamentals of the commercial and legal fields in the UK, which have proven essential in understanding and applying the substantive material of the coursework. Above all, I have previously trained and mentored students in another vocational field (aviation) and would like to leverage this to benefit those at the university level.

Ahmed Mirza - MSc Professional Accountancy

Ahmed Mirza - MSc Professional Accountancy

I am a Kuwait-born Pakistani national, currently residing in Kuwait. My father passed away when I was in my early teenage years. Unfortunately, since then, I did not have a father-figure around. I began working at the age of 17. I obtained my Bachelor's degree alongside the employment. After that, I completed my ACCA qualification, albeit, delayed due to personal circumstances. I also completed the CPA Australia qualification with ACCA.

Then I got the opportunity to get my Master's degree from University of London, thanks to the collaboration between University of London and ACCA in forming this degree programme for ACCA students, affiliates and members. I have proudly framed the degree and shelved it in my office.

I realise how hard it is not to have anyone around to discuss one's career plans. Therefore, I actively volunteer my time to guide people in accountancy education and career related matters. I have openly invited my connections on Linkedin to reach me for any questions they have and for guidance they may require. I am glad to have helped those who approached me so far on ACCA qualification and MSc in Professional Accountancy degree questions. I look forward to being of assistance to the accountancy students with the best of my knowledge and capabilities.
