Huda holds an LLB, Higher Diploma in Private Law, LLM from Tripoli University, and a PhD from University of Exeter. She wrote her thesis on: ‘The Unconscionability Doctrine in Electronic Standard Form Contracting: A Critical Study of Libyan Contract Law’.
Huda is a lecturer at Faculty of Law, Tripoli University, namely in the field of obligations and commercial law, and has joined the teaching team of Constitutional & Administrative Law in 2017/2018 in the Law School at the University of Exeter.
Huda’s primary research is in the field of contract law from a comparative perspective. She is currently conducting research in cooperation with Dr Mathilde Pavis, one of the staff members of the Law School in Exeter University. This research seeks to study the impact of ‘Uber-like’ online recruitment platforms such as Fiverr, Upwork or Quidjob on remuneration and contracts in the UK voice-over industry.
Huda is particularly focusing on the legal mechanisms that contract law may offer to resolve issues of unfairness in intellectual property contracts. Huda’s research interests include the recent development of online contracting and issues of the enforceability of substantively unfair contracts that are a result of an extreme imbalance in power between contractual parties.
