Hi! My name is Andreas Maltan and I am a postgraduate student studying for an LLM in International Business Law. I attended the New York Military Academy before enrolling at Ulster University for my undergraduate degree in Politics. I graduated from UU in 2021 and I decided to enrol for a postgraduate degree to boost my employability. And I decided on the School of Law at Queen's because of its excellent reputation. Being new to the legal world, my primary interests relate to Democracy, Governance, and Political Legitimacy. I look forward to coupling these interests of mine with those I have on international trade and trade law, and to sharing my thoughts with our valued readers!
