Secretary: Feda Dabbagh
Feda is a Junior Commercial Litigation Lawyer and is passionate about all things related to international law. When not reading her copy of The Practitioner’s Guide to International Law, she can be found either submerged in a D.H. Lawrence novel, lost in the vintage markets of London, or moonlighting as a humanitarian law advocate extraordinaire. A potent shot of nerdy with a dash of quirky.
