First ILAWS distance learning students graduate

Published: 19 July 2013

Academic staff at Southampton Law School’s Institute for Law and the Web (ILAWS) have congratulated the first students to graduate with an LLM degree in IT and Telecoms Law by distance learning.


Simon Worthy, Neil Brown and Salvatore Bocchetti received their certificates at the Graduation Ceremony at the Turner Sims Concert Hall in July 2013. Ban Al-Bakri, Luis Gonzalez Lopez, Heather Batyski and Carla Carrara Goulart have also graduated but were unable to be there. Neil Brown will now continue at ILAWS to study for a PhD.

"This is a landmark day for ILAWS," explains Director Professor Steve Saxby. "Although studying for a postgraduate law degree always demands much hard work, it is particularly challenging to complete a LLM on a part-time basis by distance learning."

Neil comments: "After two years of studying, it was great to graduate with a masters degree from Southampton, and to celebrate our successes with professors Ian Lloyd, David Mellor and Steve Saxby."

ILAWS welcomes enquiries from graduates and professional lawyers who want to develop their career by studying IT and telecoms law with many of the world's leading academics in these important subjects.
