Dr Rebecca Pein’s passion for justice has seen her graduate, not with a master’s degree as she set out to do, but with a PhD.
Thanks to the extensive work she put into her dissertation on artisanal mining, she was accepted for the rare opportunity to upgrade from an LLM to a PhD. Rebecca did this while training as a candidate attorney and starting a business in the form of an online platform for female runners called ‘The Running Women’. She graduated with her PhD in March 2022.
