Our Team \ Jamil Mustafa (Private Law Editor)


Jamil is currently undertaking pupillage at a commercial chancery chambers, after obtaining an Outstanding on the BPTC at BPP University as a Denning Scholar of Lincoln's Inn, and a Distinction on the BCL at Oxford. He previously graduated with an MPhil in American History with Distinction from Clare College, Cambridge, and with First Class Honours in Government and History from the LSE.

He has an interest in a wide swathe of civil law, principally contract, tort and equity. Jamil finds the law of obligations’ correlative framework of rights and obligations particularly interesting, and is equally fascinated by the at times hazy distinction between personal and proprietary rights. It’s just as well then that he is set on a career at the Commercial Bar.

Jamil is also a longstanding participant in public speaking, debating and mooting, enjoying some success in these pursuits. He has also had previous journalistic experience through successive internships with The Daily Telegraph, writing for both the politics and foreign affairs desks.

In a past life, Jamil was (is) a keen historian, with a particular interest in the history of American foreign relations, and is something of a dilettante of moral and political philosophy. He also enjoys sport: he is a staunch supporter of Manchester United FC, and played cricket and rugby at school, as well as rowing (to a distinctly mediocre standard) for his college at Cambridge.
