A for­mer Stan­ground Academy school­girl, who was raised in Afghanistan, has been dis­play­ing her knowl­edge of the English le­gal sys­tem in a na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.

Now a third year Law LLB stu­dent at Anglia Ruskin in Cam­bridge, Hameeda Hus­sani has been com­pet­ing with fel­low stu­dent Me­riam Altaf and they have al­ready beaten a team from the Univer­sity of East Anglia in the UK Law Stu­dents As­so­ci­a­tion Na­tional Moot Com­pe­ti­tion.

The sec­ond round is in Jan­uary.

Hameeda said: “Study­ing Law at Anglia Ruskin has been a great ex­pe­ri­ence and has opened my eyes to the kind of ca­reer I would love to pur­sue. My dream is to get a pupil­lage and a place at the bar, so tak­ing part in moot­ing com­pe­ti­tions is ideal prepa­ra­tion for that.”
