What our students say

"I completed the LLM Advanced Legal Practice in 2023. The LLM has given a tremendous boost to my career. Family and Child Law has always been my passion and the broad range of topics to choose from on the LLM programme allowed me to hone in on this area. I really enjoyed the process of legal research, and I was very proud to make a small contribution to the corpus of what is fast becoming an important area of criminal and family law. Since obtaining my LLM, I have even been invited to speak at a number of events as a specialist on coercive control. These events have greatly increased my profile as a family lawyer and in turn broadened my client base. I would not have had these opportunities without having enrolled on the LLM Advanced Legal Practice."
