LLM, BA LLB at King Saud University.

Research interests

My PhD research is about CSR in Law and Practice in the Saudi Context.

Supervisors: Dr Andreas Rühmkorf and Dr Navajyoti Samanta.

My Research interests:

  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Company Law and Corporate Governance
  • Sustainable Development
  • Comparative Law
Teaching activities

I taught a avariety of modules at Undergraduate level. My teaching draws on my research interests as commercial law, company law and corporate governance. I urged students to relate the law to the social context. I also showed them different models of Western laws and their comparison with the Saudi context, this is to find advanced solutions to gaps in the laws. I am also interested in the analytical aspect of laws so I have been participating with students in analytical discussions about the importance of commercial law in attracting foreign investment.

Professional activities

I have attended many conferences, the most recent of which was the Conference of ‪Socio-Legal Research ‬for PhD students at university of Edinburgh, and I have also attended many legal discussions inside and outside the University of Sheffield, such as historical development of the intellectual property system and the extent to which corporate laws have strengthened sustainability.
