Committee

Student Representatives on the UKAEL Committee


Mathias Cheung

I am currently a Pupil Barrister in London, having just completed the Bar Professional Training Course at City Law School. I have previously obtained my LLB at King's College London and BCL at Oxford. As an international student from Hong Kong, I have always been fascinated by the multiculturalism that European Law represents, and my experience as a stagiaire at the Court of Justice of the EU has shown me the value of diversity and inclusiveness. To me, the UKAEL stands for an open-minded environment for lawyers of all backgrounds with a deep interest in law and society. I am keen to encourage student participation in the UKAEL, through a host of unique conferences and our new student-driven EU Law Blog which we intend to launch very soon. If you have any questions at all or would like to get involved in the Blog, do feel free to get in touch!'


Sofia Nocentini, King's College London

Coming from Italy, one of the founding members of the European Union, I have always considered European citizenship as a key part of my identity. However, it was only during my first year as a LLB student that I started to actually appreciate its comprehensive and diversified nature. Therefore, as a Student Representative for UKAEL I aim, firstly, at making information about current issues in the EU readily available to students. Secondly, my personal objective would be to demystify some aspects of the Union and encourage a wider discussion. London, as a cultural melting pot, is the perfect platform to launch an international debate, which is fundamental in order to shape the future of the EU.


Kinga Robutka, King's College London

I have been particularly interested in the European project for quite some time now. Coming from Poland, I have witnessed the positive impact European law has had on my country throughout my entire life. During my first year of studying Law at King’s College London I got the chance to learn more about it, and then I decided to pursue a career in European law. Through my involvement as a Student Ambassador for the UKAEL I want to encourage a constructive and informed discussion amongst the incredibly diverse student community in London, which I believe will be vital for the future of the EU. Big decisions are lying ahead both for the European Union and the UK, therefore I believe now is the best time to engage young people and start making a change from the grassroots level.
