Najaah Bodunrin, LLB student, completed a research assistant placement in the Department of Law over the summer. During this placement, Najaah assisted Dr Aisling McMahon with research related to patents on emerging medical technologies, including in the Covid-19 context. Alongside this, she provided research assistance on case law related to assisted dying. She also worked with Dr Amina Adanan researching new technologies as evidence of the commission of international crimes and helping with module preparation. Finally, she helped Dr Edana Richardson with the development of an online postgraduate module.
Speaking about her placement, Najaah noted: ‘the best part of placement is that no matter what you’re doing, you are constantly learning, as well as developing relationships with lecturers who you can later use as academic references.’ Najaah also commented that during the ‘placement I was able to branch out and explore different areas of law, specifically medical law, law and new technologies, international criminal law as well as previews into modules I will be required to do later on, such as Land and Property Law.’
Thank you for your help Najaah!
