Career Details

Dr Ahmed possesses a PhD in Law from the Centre for Private International Law, School of Law, University of Aberdeen where he was awarded a fully funded Doctoral Scholarship to fund his research project in Private International Law of the EU. Dr Ahmed's research project focused on the fundamental juridical nature, classification and private law enforcement of choice of forum and choice of law agreements in international commercial disputes before the English courts. As a barrister trained in the English common law tradition, he has adopted a comparative law approach where the English common law of conflict of laws is considered alongside the ever burgeoning European Union private international law regime and global efforts at regulation, such as the Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements. He has acted as a Law Tutor and Assessor in the School of Law, University of Aberdeen whilst working full time on the PhD research project.

Prior to the commencement of his doctoral studies in Aberdeen, he was a practicing Advocate and a Lecturer in the Conflict of Laws and Jurisprudence and Legal Theory to University of London (External) students at SZABIST Law School, Karachi. At this point in his career, his formal legal education consisted of the Bar Vocational Course (BVC) from the Inns of Court School of Law (Lincoln's Inn) and a Master's and Bachelor's degree in Law from City University London and the University of London respectively.
