Student Profile(s)

Louise Tak Nem Leung

I’ve always been interested in both disciplines of law and psychology, so for me the LLM in Criminology and Criminal Justice suited my interests perfectly. My year in UCD has greatly broadened my perspectives and horizons for my future, as the specialisation of this masters in criminology and criminal justice has provided a good platform for future career development opportunities or doctoral studies. UCD has a veryenergetic and student friendly atmosphere and lecturers are extremely supportive and encouraging. I found it really easy to settle in during my studies for this year and I’m currently pursuing a career within the area of restorative justice and the probation services and aiming towards completing a PhD in Law.
