Malgorzata Hussain


I am the module leader for the undergraduate English Legal Systems and Methods and postgraduate Energy and Climate Change Law modules. I am also the Director of the Kingston University Legal Advice Centre and the KU Student Law Society Liaison.

I joined Kingston University as an academic in 2016 and previously taught on undergraduate law and social science courses at Croydon College. I graduated from Kingston University with LLB International Law and completed my postgraduate studies at the University of Portsmouth where I obtained MSc in Counter Fraud and Counter Corruption. I am currently pursuing my PhD studies at Kingston on the topic of regulatory matters concerning marine plastic pollution.

My research interests relate to environmental law, marine plastic pollution and microplastics. In addition, I am interested in climate change migration, human rights and social justice.
