WHAT I DO NOW

I currently work as a Legal advisor in one of the leading Islamic banks in Saudi Arabia. I provide legal opinions on all matters affecting the bank across all departments and businesses. I also draft and review various contracts and agreements concerning the bank and receive and answer legal consultations from all of the bank’s businesses, departments and branches. I also conduct legal research, including online research regarding precedents and new laws affecting the bank’s businesses.

MY HAWAIʻI EXPEREINCE

The LLM experience provided me with enough knowledge to deal with the various legal aspects of my work. The education I gained from UH Law School has also enhanced my confidence as an advocate and I now look ahead to a more successful professional career.

TIPS FOR LLM STUDENTS

I strongly recommend UH Law to those who are looking forward to become a successful and dignified legal practitioner.
