Mine Toufeq is an LPC graduate who specialised in Mergers and Acquisition, Intellectual Property Law and Commercial Law. During her undergraduate studies, she volunteered as an intern at the Bar Bro Bono Unit and Triage legal helpline to aid individuals with no means of access to legal services. Her work involved helping distressing cases such as abuse of young girls and deportation of young adults who were worried for their safety.
She is passionate about campaigning for women’s rights as there is still an alarming gap between the employment rates of women and men in the legal profession. Mine considers that women are still stigmatised and thus offered fewer opportunities to work in the legal profession and joined AWSL to help break this stigma and make a difference to the system.
