Humzah Q. Yazdani was the 2019-2020 MD Anderson Research Fellow at the Institute for Transnational Law, where his research focused on carbon pricing and the role of ancillary policies to curb carbon emissions. Additionally, Humzah recently completed his Master of Laws (LL.M.) degree in Global Energy and Environmental Law at The University of Texas School of Law on a Fulbright scholarship awarded by the U.S. Department of State.
In 2020, Humzah was one of 50 Global Shapers (under 30) from around the world selected by the World Economic Forum to attend its Annual Meeting in Davos.
After earning his Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) from the University of London in 2011, Humzah qualified as a barrister from England in 2012. Since then, Humzah has practiced law in the areas of commercial and transactional law with a focus on the energy and power sectors.
Humzah is licensed to practice law in Texas (2020) and Pakistan (2012) and was called to the bar of England & Wales (2012). Going forward, Humzah intends to use his experiences to work on clean energy projects (including wind, solar, and hydrogen energy transactions), which will reduce carbon emissions and meet the world's burgeoning energy demand.
