The reason I chose to study law at King’s was mostly to do with the outstanding reputation of the Law department. The level of teaching and research is excellent, with many of the professors leading in their field. The Strand campus is also right at the centre of the legal world, meaning trips to the Royal Courts of Justice or top law firms are an easy possibility.
Having attended an open day, I was sure that London was the place for me. The city has an unrivalled nightlife and a wide range of free activities, like movie screenings in the summer and comedy acts throughout winter, so it’s the ideal place for a student. It also means that I can study at a fantastic university whilst being able to live and enjoy one of Europe’s most diverse and exciting cities.
Throughout my time at King’s I have been an active member of the Law Society and Pro Bono Society, as well as currently undertaking the role of Student Ambassador. I have also worked in the London Student Union.
Additionally last year I was able to study abroad in Australia. This was an exceptional experience allowing me to learn about an entirely different legal system whilst meeting people from all over the world. The accessibility to these types of experiences is definitely a major plus to studying here.
It is undeniable that studying here has provided me with a great foundation for my legal career. Following graduation I hope to be able to continue my studies, to do a masters in law; my first choice for this would easily be King’s.
