I chose Southampton so that I would be able to take part in, and engage with the employability services. I was always interested in the advocacy aspect of being a lawyer, so the opportunity to do mooting in the first year was a key factor in my decision. I was also attracted by the large variety of optional modules that were available

When I visited, the people I met and the University itself gave me an odd sense of belonging. It felt more personable than other places and I could see myself living, working and enjoying being there.

I chose to study at Southampton because of the 2 year LLB JD programme, the inclusion of the Canadian Constitutional module was very appealing. Aside from the academic staff, the location of the city in relation to London was also a significant factor for me.

I chose Southampton for two main reasons. Firstly, because it was one of the recommended schools for the JD pathway by Across the Pond. Secondly, my friend who attended this university a couple of years before I started talked to me about the great approach taken by the professors here in helping students to succeed in what can be an extremely challenging degree.

Southampton has helped me become the person I always wanted to be: confident and approachable. I grew to find the balance between being an independent person, as well as being a team member. My academic skills, such as research and critical thinking, have improved immensely.

I enjoy discovering the different parts of law that I love the most, and discovering things about myself and what my drive is. Studying law pushes me out of my comfort zone and makes me think outside of the box

The support and assistance provided by the staff in the Law School also made the whole experience enjoyable. Staff members are always there to answer our queries. In order to facilitate a more in-depth discussion, they would encourage students to step out of their comfort zone and slowly develop their judgment and communication skills. This is beneficial in preparing us for a career in the legal sector.

Southampton boasts fantastic employability statistics and is part of the prestigious Russell group. It is known for its high standard of teaching and I saw from reviews online that the university as a whole is a fun and friendly place to work with numerous support groups for any unhappy or struggling students.

I chose the University of Southampton primarily for its reputation and in being a Russell Group University. Although I wasn’t sure if I wanted a career in Law when I was looking at universities, I knew that having my undergraduate degree from Southampton would stand me in good stead when applying for graduate schemes.

My experiences at Southampton have been an adventure. As a young girl straight from high school, moving to the UK was a test, very challenging one at that too, but I have learned to be bold, I have matured and I have become fearless.

I graduated from Southampton with a law degree in 2004 but wanted to further my knowledge of the technical and legal aspects of computer science and communications. The LLM (IT and Telecoms Law) by distance learning was a great choice, enabling me to fit in studying alongside my busy life and my job as a senior communications lawyer for Vodafone.

The University has a very expansive library and I enjoyed reading the decisions especially in the Lloyds Law Reports, and LMCLQ. The University has a conducive atmosphere for learning and the lecturers are world class academics. The LLM challenge really helped my personal development by shaping my advocacy skills.
