Student Profile(s)

Shonottra Kumar, International and Comparative Law (LL.M.)

My reason for pursuing an LL.M. (International and Comparative Law) at the Law School at Trinity was to get a better understanding of the global development sector. Having completed the course, I can guarantee that this was the most rewarding experience; not just in terms of academics, where I got to interact with and study under some remarkable professionals, but also in terms of an overall university experience where Trinity’s hundred-plus clubs and societies offer you the space to explore new things about yourself.

While I was learning about development law, I also got to experience it first hand with yet another unique feature of Trinity, its Graduate Students’ Union - an independent student body that works for the benefit of postgraduate students in the university. Working with the GSU afforded me with the opportunity of interacting with students from different disciples and allowing me to significantly grow my network. An important lesson that I learned from my year in Trinity, was that my network was my net worth. Overall, from the variety of excellent modules to choose from, to making global connections that would last a lifetime, I would recommend this course to everyone. And if you do choose to come here, make the most of it!
