Aisha Babalakin - Alumni Relations Officer

How has being on the committee of the Law Society benefited you?

As Alumni Relations Officer of the Law Society, I had the opportunity to connect with SOAS Law Alumni from different years and backgrounds, and these interactions helped me appreciate the value of a SOAS education. I learned that you can do almost anything with a SOAS Law degree, there's no path that is unavailable to you.

What was the most enjoyable part of the experience?

The Law Society Board were a fantastic team to work with. We organised food drives, we had Christmas parties, we baked desserts - it was a wonderful experience. Every member of the society was committed to cultivating a worthwhile experience for SOAS students - both law and non-law, and I'm proud to have been a member of that team.

What advice would you give to current Law students?

Enjoy your time at SOAS, don't spend all your time worrying about the future. It'll come soon enough. What is life after SOAS like for you? Is there anything else you would like to add? I'm currently studying for the LPC at BPP Holborn. My training contract with Latham & Watkins starts in September 2019. I'm still in touch with my SOAS friends, and I love to hang out with them
