Meet our Editorial Board:

The Exeter Law Review Editorial Board is made up of some of the brightest minds that the University of Exeter has to offer. Each candidate goes through a rigorous screening process and are chosen for their strong editing skills, academic curiosity and international outlook.

Following on in the tradition set by previous boards, the current Exeter Law Review Editorial Team prides itself of its international outlook; drawing on influences from various localities including the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Nepal, the Philippines, Canada, the Czech Republic and Sri Lanka.

We are pleased to introduce out latest Exeter Law Review Editorial Board (20/21)

Editors in Chief

Frances Hand

Frances is a final year LLB Law student at the University of Exeter. Her main area of interest is International Human Rights and this has influenced both her academic module choices (including the University’s free legal advice clinic) and her involvement in the ELR Podcast.

When not surrounded by textbooks, Frances is a keen pianist and vocalist and has recently taken up competitive Ultimate Frisbee (which she recommends to anyone and everyone she meets!)

Shania Essah Aurelio

Shania is in her penultimate year studying Law and French Law. Her legal academic interests heavily coincide with her “everything’s great, I don’t mind!” attitude, which proves to be a nightmare whenever people ask her where she wants to eat. Alongside her work with the LGBTQ+ and Law initiative, Shania is currently working at the university’s Access to Justice and Immigration Clinics.

Thanks to her Filipino genes, Shania enjoys playing basketball (despite measuring a staggering 5”1) and serenading her friends and family at any given opportunity.

Managing Editors

Fizaa Ahmed

Fizaa is a second year law student whose main interests are in human rights and constitutional law, as well as commercial law (on a good day). She has been part of the law review for two years, a highlight of which was working on the ELR Podcast. Among her studies, she is involved Amicus and also contributed to the Access to Justice summer clinic.

Outside her legal studies, Fizaa is on committee for the Exeter University Rounders Club, and is an avid traveller (or at least she was pre–corona).

Rida Ahmed

Rida is in her penultimate year studying LLB Law at the University of Exeter. She enjoys understanding the intricacies of the law, especially when it comes to the fine print, so it’s no surprise that her main area of interest is anything contract related (weird, we know). In her defence, it allows her to explore a vast range of legal sectors. She’s able to discuss topical issues through her involvement with the ELR Podcast and she spent her summer co-organising a series of successful virtual advocacy competitions via LinkedIn.

Beyond the academia, Rida loves a bit of fitness from long distance running to amateur boxing. She’s currently involved in a new society, Saturation, which provides an outlet for Exeter’s creatives and is also a writer for the Tab, but we’re sure it’s all just a ploy for her to get onto Fashion in the Forum…

Leah Gibson 

Leah is a penultimate year law student with an interest in Commercial Law and Medical Ethics, the latter having been inspired by an article she edited for the ELR. Ultimately, her goal is to become a commercial barrister, specialising in financial law (she is clearly missing A Level further maths)!


Alongside her degree, she is on the University of Exeter Bar Group committee, volunteers for Citizens Advice, and organises virtual advocacy competitions for the initiative she co-founded with Rida Ahmed. When she actually takes a break from law, she enjoys playing netball and going to the gym (weightlifting – you will never catch her doing cardio!)
