"Having taken a break from work as a medical defence solicitor to look after my family, I was delighted to find a flexible course which could bring my medico legal knowledge comprehensively up to date. The internationally respected LLM in Legal Aspects of Medical Practice was perfect. A stimulating mix of students from medicine, healthcare management, nursing and law, combined with excellent teaching and support ensured a fantastic learning environment and created opportunities for me that I never anticipated."
“My decision to study at Cardiff Law School was fuelled by its’ excellent reputation. The Law School offers various opportunities to enhance the student experience, such as the Pro Bono Scheme and the Innocent Project, both of which provide valuable practical experience. T he management of this course has been extremely impressive; the administration staff and tutors provide a tremendous support system and are always encouraging and helpful. The content, course structure and teaching methods have all surpassed my expectations and I would recommend it to prospective students.”
"Like most international students I was a little apprehensive about travelling abroad to study, but that feeling was dismissed as soon as I arrived in Cardiff. The University staff were friendly and supportive and made me feel very welcome. I was also provided with excellent accommodation on arrival."
“I chose Cardiff because the Centre for Professional Legal Studies was only one of three institutions around the UK that had been awarded an ‘Excellent’ rating by the Law Society for my course, and there was a high ratio of staff to students. My year at Cardiff was a very positive experience and an excellent start to my legal career. It was the first time in any university that I have felt accepted as a deaf person, and this was due to the willingness of staff to accommodate my needs.”
“My year in Cardiff Law School student was the richest experience I have had during my studies so far. The quality of the staff, the quantity of resources and the structure of the course programme provided me with the best environment to develop legal and research skills. I also met exceptional people from all over the world, both students and members of the staff. This diversity has given rise to intense exchanges during study sessions, to the discovery of other cultures and to lifetime friendships. To obtain top-class legal and research skills and to build an international social network, I would strongly recommend Cardiff Law School.”
