Student Profile(s)

Eva Cofie

LLM Ambassador

"My name is Eva Eleanor D. A. Cofie and I am a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales. I have worked in private practice since I was admitted as a Solicitor in 2001 specialising in civil litigation in areas including commercial, contract, housing and employment law. I have always had an intense desire to try to right wrongs and to correct injustices and have enjoyed practising as a Legal Aid Solicitor helping the underdog. To expand on my knowledge of the law and broaden my client base, I decided to take the International Commercial Law LLM course at Kent University on a part time basis.

Kent University was for me, the obvious choice as I believed that I would have some of the best lecturers and research facilities in the UK. I was particularly attracted by the critical approach to law taught at Kent Law School, which has been one of the UK’s leading academic institutions with a commitment to excellence in teaching and research for almost fifty years. In addition, Kent Law School offers a broad range of interesting modules on the International Commercial Law course. I have thoroughly enjoyed the course so far and I believe that on completion of the course, I would have acquired the necessary knowledge and skills to make a difference in the international commercial law arena."

Andrea Christoforide

"My name is Andrea Christoforide and I am Greek-Cypriot. I have graduated from a private English school in Cyprus. Onwards, I studied Accounting and Finance at the University of Kent for the academic years 2012-2015 and I successfully completed my BA in Accounting and Finance by achieving a First.
In order to broaden my academic knowledge I decided to do the LLM and more specifically the International Commercial Law. Cyprus is a country with an economy that relies a lot on foreign investment. I believe that the combination of the two, Accounting & Finance and Law in areas such as finance and foreign investment, will provide me with a competitive advantage in the recruitment process and help in my professional advancement.

My passion regarding Accounting and Finance is still my priority and therefore after the completion of my master’s degree in LLM, I will continue further and acquire the professional qualification of the ACA. This will be the final step towards my professional career.

Last summer I had the opportunity to do a summer internship at PricewaterhouseCoopers in Cyprus which is one of the Big Four auditing firms in the world. The experiences I had were great and through this program I learned to work as part of a team and cooperate with the other participants to complete the tasks assigned to us.

I decided to continue my studies at Kent University because the interactions I had as an undergraduate were great. Not only the scenic environment of the university nor the beautiful buildings but mostly the teaching qualities. The professors were really supportive and the environment very stimulating. Since the programs of LLM are open to non-law graduates, and being a graduate with not an appropriate academic or professional background in the area of law, this was the best opportunity for me to develop an advanced understanding of law in the field of International Commercial Law in which I am interested in."
