School of Law Scholarship Winner 2013-14, LLM in Intellectual Property Law
Prior to entering the LLM programme at Queen Mary, I graduated from the University of Milan, where during the last year of Law school I undertook an internship in a well-established Italian law firm. There I frequently faced Intellectual Property litigation issues and consequently developed my interest in this area. I decided that the best way to obtain a specialised education was with an LLM and with this goal in mind I applied to a number of LLM programmes, including the one offered by Queen Mary.
The variety and range of modules offered and the reputation as a leading UK institution in IP law made Queen Mary my first choice. I was thrilled to learn that not only had I received an offer of place but that also my Scholarship application had been successful. I am very grateful to Queen Mary for the opportunity to focus 100% on my studies, without having to worry about financial issues.
So far I am truly enjoying studying at Queen Mary. My modules are interesting and challenging. In particular, I really appreciate the opportunity to participate in a number of seminars on IP law organised by Queen Mary with no additional cost. Another positive aspect is that all lecturers are very friendly and supportive, always willing to give useful feedback on a variety of issues.
After the completion of my LLM I wish to secure a training contract in a law firm here in London. I am really enjoying London and I hope to learn as much as I can from this highly multicultural city.
