Jeffrey

Programme: LLB Bachelor of Laws, 2010

Current Position:   Senior Executive, Legal Department, Central Bank of Malaysia

Country: Malaysia|

I recently graduated from the LSE under a full scholarship from the Central Bank of Malaysia and have since returned to work in the Legal Department of the Bank. Studying at the LSE was a stimulating experience due to its unique emphasis on socio-legal theory and the variety of specialist subjects available.   It has given me a good theoretical foundation which I am now able to apply in my advisory work for the Bank, which encompasses many areas of law including commercial law, constitutional and administrative law, and public international law. The Law Department also provides excellent supervision from leading academics in their respective fields. As a result, my undergraduate dissertation for Competition Law will be published as an article in an upcoming issue of a European law journal in mid-2011.
