Career Path: Associate Barrister at Rahman Law Associates and Company
Location: Dhaka, Bangladesh

I am a University of London graduate and currently practicing as an Advocate at Dhaka Judge Court being an associate of Rahman & Company law firm. I have been enrolled under the Bangladesh Bar Council in the year 2018 and have right of audience throughout Bangladesh in any Court, Tribunal or revenue authority subordinate to the High Court Division of the Supreme Court of Bangladesh. I've dreamt of becoming a lawyer since a very young age seeing my father who is also a Barrister-At-Law practise law. Since I had been actively engaged in social work (being volunteer of several non profit organization), the legal profession was where I belong. Therefore right after graduating Bachelor of Laws, I invested several hours in studying for the enrolment exam in order to get my practising license. In order to excel in my career and master the art of advocacy, I decided to train as a Barrister months after I got enrolled as an Advocate.

What are you doing now?

Currently I am an Associate Barrister at Rahman Law Associates and Company dealing with corporate, commercial and general civil matters. My role is to deal with clients, take their briefs, direct them to the appropriate legal route and conduct their cases.

What was it about Northumbria that made you decide to study here?

I chose Northumbria University for my Bar Course due to its teaching, its state of the art facilities and student satisfaction. While deciding which university to go to from a list of several other Bar providers, it was Northumbria which particularly attracted me. It has got everything for a law school which can provide a worthwhile experience for any law student. The teaching is interactive and practical which is what law students need. Northumbria's law library is one of the best as recommended by many and has an actual court room for students to practice their advocacy skills. Such amenities, I believe, are truly beneficial for the proper grooming of aspiring lawyers.

What was it like studying at Northumbria?  

I was particularly impressed at the teachers and their teaching skills at Northumbria. Law lectures can get quite boring, but the teachers did their best to not make us feel that way. The way they made use of technology made the entire teaching interactive. The lecturers used to make the entire class participate in every way possible, even if it is just a Yes or No. The small group sessions took the interactive teaching to another level. It allowed the teachers to individually answer the students’ queries and communicate as much as possible. These sessions allowed students to really become involved in their studies in the form of assignments and homework. Advocacy and drafting sessions in small groups meant constant trial and error and learning from mistakes. The teachers who conducted the sessions would eventually assess their final result. Therefore, the students would strive to perform their best, in hopes of getting good grades in the exam.

How connected was your course with industry?

To pursue my career as a full time practitioner in Bangladeshi courts, I needed to excel with the required skills. Therefore, to acquire in depth legal expertise and the art of advocacy, I trained as a Barrister in the Bar Course. Barristers are specialists in advocacy, law and litigation, which will help me since I want to engage in the process of legal reform in the country. The prestigious title itself would provide me with better opportunities for a dignified profession.
