Shelagh Slade

"The legal knowledge gained from the LLM has filled the gaps in my employment law knowledge providing me with the tools to work out legal solutions with greater accuracy and speed for my business clients. I find that I can assimilate new cases much quicker having in-depth knowledge of the underlying legal principles gained from studying on the course."
