Personal profile


Mahmoud Masud, prior to pursuing his dream job in academia, had over 13 years of proven record in customer relations; in both, the public (charitable) and the private (engineering) sectors. Mahmoud was awarded certificates in recognition of those achievements. In 2015, Mahmoud completed his LLB in International Law from Coventry University and was sponsored (by Coventry University) to complete his LLM in Law, which he completed in 2016, and was awarded the Course Tutor’s Prize.

In 2016, Mahmoud gained extensive knowledge working in Registry before starting his teaching career in 2017. Since 2017, Mahmoud, in addition to supervising dissertations as part of the Postgraduate Research Project, has been involved in leading and teaching on a number of legal topics in the law school (and cross-faculties), including (but not confined to) Equity and Trust, Land Law, Nature of Law, Academic and Career Development and Business Law (which includes Contract Law, Tort Law, Company Law, Partnership and Agency, Employment Law, English Legal System and Criminal Law).

Since 2019, in addition to starting his PhD in Islamic Law and International Human Rights, Mahmoud has also acted as an Academic Conduct Officer (investigating and deciding on issues pertaining to plagiarism) and as a Progress Coach (providing advice on academic and/or personal concerns) all in light of the university’s regulations and the principles that underpin those regulations. Currently, while Mahmoud is focusing on providing excellent collaborative teaching, learning and research, is also looking to develop his leadership skills in order to further his career progression, ultimately, leading in HE at national and/or international level.

Research Interests

Mahmoud has a particular interest in International Human Rights, Islamic and English Law. Currently, Mahmoud conducts research that aims to establish possible middle ground between Islamic and International Law, on issues pertaining to Human Rights. However, Mahmoud aims to establish himself as a comparative lawyer and aims to further expand his comparative research beyond human rights, onto areas that involve Land, Inheritance and Trust law. Mahmoud believes that Islam is an adequate legal system and that his research aims to establish such perception with evidence from Islam, while addressing issues of implementation and interpretation in Muslim states. Mahmoud believes that his findings, if acknowledged, will help establish possible, internationally acceptable, legal frameworks, in the areas mentioned above, for Muslim states to utilise in order to meet international standards; without violating Islamic tenets.
