LLB Senior Status Student
"Having graduated with an undergraduate degree in Politics, I was keen to study law in a university that would challenge me academically and provide me with opportunities to engage in meaningful extra-curricular activities. The School of Law at Queen Mary, University of London, has not disappointed! The quality of teaching within the department is phenomenal, as reflected in our impressive national rankings. I have been supported throughout my studies by approachable staff that go the extra mile to ensure that students succeed. I have been active in the Pro Bono Group and the Law Society which have given me opportunities to work with lawyers from some of London's top commercial firms. I have worked with Lawyers Without Borders and a local legal advice centre which have provided an excellent insight into a career as a solicitor. I believe that the Department of Law at Queen Mary has given me a thorough academic grounding in law as well as the opportunity to develop skills needed in my future career."
