Felicity British Law with European Legal Studies LLB With a law school consistently high in the league tables and in the very centre of London, King’s was the perfect choice for me. The faculty is just minutes from Covent Garden and Trafalgar Square, so you’re never short of things to do between classes.
There are plenty of extracurricular activities to get involved in; for instance, I was an active committee member of the European Law Students Association. I also had the opportunity to spend a year abroad in Sweden, where I studied European Legal Studies and Swedish at Uppsala University. However, if Scandinavia sounds too cold for you, exchange placements exist all over Europe!
The LLB has been challenging and varied, with a great range of module options for whichever area of law may be of interest. The university also provides an excellent support network, and the Careers Service has been particularly valuable in giving me advice and training for presentations and job applications. This, together with the Law School’s outstanding reputation and location close to London’s commercial law firms, helped me to secure a training contract with the ‘magic circle’ firm Slaughter and May.
