A LLB graduate from the University of London, Zufashan Hasan is Cedar’s Law teacher. Following her graduation, she practiced criminal litigation at MCAS&W Law Associates, before transitioning into the areas of Human Rights and Judicial Reform. She reveals that working with local and international NGOs such as the Pakistan Fisher folk Forum, PILER, the European Centre for Constitutional and Human Rights, and the Human Rights Law Network has greatly deepened her knowledge regarding issues critical to civil society. Acknowledging the dearth of awareness of these key challenges, Zufashan was drawn to the education sector, where she found her true calling in the classroom.
Zufashan’s student-oriented, socratic style of teaching brings an off-kilter zest and rigor to her classes. She has spent the past four years teaching A-Level Law, and Undergraduate courses in Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, Jurisprudence for the University of London International LL.B programme.
In addition to classroom teaching, Zufashan’s academic interests range from progressive pedagogy and educational technology to philosophy and women’s legal challenges. Currently she is engaged with SABAQ, where she creates digital content for children in government and primary schools in Pakistan.
In her spare time, Zufashan practices classical music and is training to play the Sitar.
