291.jpg I was encouraged to apply for an LLM by one of the NTU Professors in Law who I met on the NTU International Summer School in Strasbourg which was a great experience. I'm really enjoying the course because I'm specializing in an area of law which is of great interest to me. It's a course that is not just for law graduates, but for people from other backgrounds. For example, some of my classmates are lawyers but many come from other professional occupations such as doctors and clinicians.

I am really happy with the lecturers and the way they conduct the seminars as they become more of a discussion than a lesson. Before we go the seminar we do some preparation reading and then we discuss is with our classmates. This really allows us to think more about different views and opinions. I study part-time because I am also working full time. The main difference between doing the LLM part time and full time is there is more time to do your dissertation.

The best thing about Nottingham is the fact that it is affordable. There are nice places to see and we have a great student life. I go to the 'Viva La Fiesta' parties which are held by international students in Nottingham and there is a really good atmosphere. You meet people from all over the world.
