Standing out in a Sea of Grey Suits: Q & A with Aina Khan OBE
Aina Khan OBE is a world-renowned consultant solicitor in London, specialising in the field of International Family Law. She is a leading expert in Islamic and Asian issues.
In addition to her demanding cases, in 2014 Aina launched the highly successful campaign ‘Register our Marriage’ (‘ROM’ with the aims of (a) raising awareness of the complete lack of legal rights for those living together without a registered marriage and (b) lobbying for English marriage law to require compulsory registration of all religious marriages, not just those of 3 faiths – Church of England, Jewish and Quaker.
In light of her achievements, Aina was awarded an OBE in HM the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list 2018 for ‘Services to the protection of women and children in unregistered marriages’. As a valued member of the Non-Executive Director Network, we sat down with Aina to learn what drew her to the law, how she met critical challenges in her career and what advice she would impart to aspiring professionals who must break through more barriers than others to stand out and make an impact.
