Doctor of Laws Awarded to Professor Subedi by Hull University

The University of Hull has awarded the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, to Leeds Law Professor Surya P. Subedi, QC, OBE, DCL.

This has been awarded in recognition of Professor Subedi’s accomplishments in the field of international law and human rights.

Professor Subedi had obtained an LLM with Distinction and a prize for best LLM student of the year in 1988 at Hull.

Commenting on the award of such a high accolade by Hull, he said he was honoured by the recognition of his accomplishments by his alma mater.

Upon completion of his LLM, Professor Subedi won an FCO scholarship to study for a DPhil (PhD) in Law at the University of Oxford and obtained his degree with a prize in 1993.

Last year, Oxford awarded him the highest degree - the Doctor of Civil Law (DCL) in recognition of his contribution to international law and human rights.
