I recently presented an academic paper at my very first international conference. I presented a paper on the Twin Peaks Financial Sector Regulatory Reforms in South Africa at the Annual Conference on Law, Economics and Politics (AICLEP) 2016 which was held at the University of Cambridge, England.
South Africa is reforming the regulation of its financial sector towards a Twin Peaks structure – following a global trend of twin peaks regulatory reforms in countries such as the Netherlands and more recently the United Kingdom. The topic was the focus of my Master of Laws (LLM in International Banking and Finance Law) dissertation – which I completed at University College London (UCL) in London, England. Therefore I am grateful to have received an opportunity to present my thesis ideas at such a prestigious conference.

Here are some of my favourite highlights from the conference:
I even received an opportunity to Chair one of the sessions – Interdisciplinary Studies Group/Session (Day TWO, SESSION ONE).
