“At the International Pub” is a blog about international law and current affairs. It is a collection of my thoughts and opinions about articles, judgments and happenings. I’m interest in exploring opinions across the spectrum.
Who am I?
I am an LLM student studying in the Ireland. I was born and raised in Botswana but have been around the region. I developed my interest in International law before I came to University because I didn’t want to be locked down to practicing in one country (naive to think I’d have a choice about my employment). I enjoy working for Legal charities and pro bono clinics. My life isn’t all law and ‘disorder’ (booo) I am also a fan of old school hip hop and smooth jazz.
Why did I start writing?
“Write something you’d like to read because even if no one reads it at least you’ll have one fan“. I don’t remember where I read that but it’s always stuck with me. I am writing this blog for three reasons:
- One I always have a passion for writing but my pragmatic parents aren’t really interested in supporting a wannabe Kerouac.
- I’m hoping a side project keeps me interested in my studies long enough for me to pass.
- As a dyslexic writing has always been a struggle for me. Unfortunately, I enjoy struggling and practice makes perfect, so hopefully writing will help me improve my skills.
Anything you should know?
The post on this blog will be separated into 3 categories
Opinions which are just my personal thoughts.
Articles are my more academic attempts at writing.
Updates may contain links to news, useful social media accounts, articles and judgments that I think are worth a read or a follow.
