Student Profile

Jingyi Shi

I found my experience of studying in Sutherland School of Law a valuable complement to my law degree from Nankai University. The academics in UCD are very approachable and the teaching content closely follows the frontier issues and research of intellectual property and information technology. I also found the level of academic feedback and support and the small class sizes very helpful to my studies.

I really enjoyed the opportunity to travel on field trips around Ireland and meet many of the other international students in the law school, allowing me to make friends from different countries and learn more about diverse cultures.

For law students who are looking to study an LLM, Intellectual Property & Information Technology is a really good choice. For students from overseas considering studying abroad, I would highly recommend UCD and in particular Sutherland School of Law."
