Professor Dr. Ali Nawaz Zaidi

1 Tell us about you and your profession in brief…?

I am an academician specializing in Commercial Laws, Human Rights, and ADR and working as a Professor in the Department of Law, at Aligarh Muslim University.

2 Why are you interested in LAW’s background in terms of studies and work…?

I believe that Law is fundamental to Life & liberty. A career in Law is intellectually challenging, financially rewarding & personally fulfilling. For me, personal fulfillment is most important. In my view, Law is not just a profession and it is a medium through which I can serve my nation & people. Law is not just about rules & regulations. Law is also about rights, justice & understanding of human behavior & society. I choose Law because it helps me in improving my standard of thought, skills & knowledge. And it also provides me the courage & support on which I can stand for the rights of people and access to justice for all. That’s why I chose law as a career.
