Dr Lolwa Alfadhel
Before joining Buckinghamshire New University in 2022, I was teaching law at various HE institutions for over 15 years at undergraduate and postgraduate level.
I hold an LLM in Public International Law and PhD in Intellectual Property Law from Queen Mary, University of London. My passion is working with students by providing them with the support and guidance they need to develop their professional skills, to enable them to achieve their full potential and seeing them go on to find successful careers.
My primary research interest is the development and enforcement of intellectual property protection in several jurisdictions. My doctoral dissertation comparatively examined the issue of counterfeit goods in transit across the Gulf Cooperation Council States and the European Union. The majority of my research and publication to date has focused on the relevant trademark laws in the European Union and the Gulf Cooperation Council States (GCC) as an effective enforcement mechanism to deal with the rise of counterfeiting activities in both regions. My other research interests include copyrights, design, and geographical locations.
I am a member of the Society of Legal Scholars, the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, and the Association of Law Teachers.
