Undertaking a Family Law module during my undergraduate studies provided me with insight into the discriminatory nature of the marriage system against Muslims, whereby Islamic marriages are not recognised under English law.

The negative consequences of the current legal system were further highlighted when I volunteered in family courts, where I observed that Muslim women are affected by a lack of awareness of the law. This has informed my mission, which is to educate Muslims and make legal information regarding Islamic marriages more accessible.

The LLM LPC course will also allow me to provide support for Muslim women who have only undertaken the Islamic nikkah ceremony, and to drive forward the recognition of nikkahs as valid marriages, in order for Muslim women to be fully protected under English law.
