Student Profile(s)

Roisin Jordan

Having completed a B.Comm at Quinn School of Business, UCD and having always wanted to pursue an education in Law, the MCL has proven to be very rewarding. Over the two years, I have studied a wide range of law subjects, preparing me for future professional qualifications. The significant array of electives offered allowed me to suit both my skills base and interests. Overall, it has provided a valuable legal education.

The combination of small class size, Masters seminars as well as core modules from the undergraduate, assessed at Masters level, has provided for a rich and rewarding learning experience.

Input of the teaching staff, as well as the support and encouragement available across the whole school, has been essential to my learning experience.

The MCL has clearly built upon my Commerce undergraduate skills and offered me the chance to pursue a Law degree, which has substantially enhanced my career progression. Choosing the MCL was the best decision I could have made.

The Masters in Common Law at UCD is more than a degree and more than a masters. It is a full law degree, pitched at masters level and taught by some of the best law lecturers in Europe. The course work is challenging but the educational supports are terrific, particularly the seminars, which give a more intensive insight into key aspects of the curriculum. Much of the success of the MCL is down to the small class size and the varied backgrounds of participants. My primary degree was in civil engineering. I commenced the MCL programme having spent more than two decades working in engineering and business. My MCL class included art historians, philosophers and a neuroscientist. Some of my modules were shared with business graduates and legal practitioners. This mixture of experiences, backgrounds and nationalities created a rather unique and dynamic learning environment. Law reaches into all corners of life. There's a
lot to be said for studying core legal principles from a shared vantage point of diverse life experiences. The MCL offers this and more.
