Law and Politics LLB
Why did you choose this course?
I am fascinated by the close link between law and politics. The crossover is thrilling and I felt that I couldn't really understand one without first understanding the other.
I picked Manchester over all the other universities because I felt that the wide spectrum of people, ideas and opinions would help me to reflect on the truly cosmopolitan nature of the UK as it is today.
I saw Manchester as a crucible out of which I would hopefully emerge as an intelligent and aware student, armed with a degree from a prestigious University.
What do you most enjoy about studying here?
The lecturers make their lectures really lively but ultimately they are all serious academics with an amazing amount of knowledge.
What has been the highlight of your course so far?
The highlight of my course so far was achieving an incredibly fulfilling average for my first year. My hours spent after dark in the Alan Gilbert Learning Commons really paid off!
Have you been involved in any societies and events?
I have been deeply involved with the Manchester University Law Society (MULS). Throughout the year, the society organises employment and careers-related events.
Sometimes they even combine both by inviting law firms to our social events for example the DLA Piper Champagne and Chocolates Autumn event.
What are your plans after graduation? How do you feel studying at Manchester has prepared you for this?
The University of Manchester has prepared me for the competitive job market not only by providing me with unparalleled knowledge of the Law but also helping me to get my foot onto the employment ladder. I was fortunate enough to be selected to for Commercial Awareness courses and the Law in the City scheme.
What advice would you give to new students at the Law School?
