Shafkat Fahmid graduated from the National University of Singapore with a Bachelor of Laws (Hons.) Degree and was admitted to the Singapore Bar as an advocate & solicitor in August 2017.

While at NUS, Shafkat was interested in commercial disputes and arbitration, which led him to present his research paper on the effect of anti-suit injunctions on international arbitration in the Maltepe University in Istanbul, Turkey. Additionally, due to his keen interest in migration and employment laws, he convened an international student conference on cross-border migration and acted as the President of the Migrant Workers Awareness Week 2016.

Shafkat assists primarily in the area of general litigation and arbitration, including commercial disputes, shipping and general insurance matters.

Apart from practising law, Shafkat enjoys playing football, reading and volunteering his time to teach English to migrant workers in Singapore. Shafkat is a native Bengali speaker and can also speak Hindi.
