As a litigation attorney based in Johannesburg, Nina Braude has advised international banks on issues around human rights, environmental law, corruption and bribery. Prior to pursuing a career in law, Nina worked as a History and English teacher at secondary schools in Cape Town. In addition to her teaching duties, Nina supported students in developing democratic governance and decision-making processes in their school. A further move from teaching to working on educational policies, impressed upon Nina the importance of legal tools in converting ideas of justice and democracy into systems which enable those ideas to be made tangible. At Oxford, Nina aims to deepen her knowledge of law and reflect on her work so far through the theoretical lens offered by the BCL.
