LLM International Law

My understanding of international law and my interest in organisations such as the United Nations were enhanced significantly on the LLM

After growing up in Oxford, attending high school next to Oxford Brookes, my tennis ability earned me a scholarship to university in California. Whilst playing pretty much full time I studied Political Science, at which point my interest in international affairs took root.

My understanding of international law and my interest in organisations such as the United Nations were enhanced significantly on the LLM. The individual research skills garnered on the course are being utilized now on the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and will be enormously beneficial for any career in law.

Oxford Brookes has a renowned Law School, the GDL and LPC are amongst the top courses in the country. As such, I was aware that my professors would be of a particularly high calibre. Teaching on the LLM was approached in a particularly concise way which made my subsequent choice to undertake the GDL at Brookes an easy decision.

Oxford is a fantastic place to be a student for all sorts of reasons, including its unique selection of pubs, but access to the Bodleian library whilst completing my dissertation was completely invaluable.
