Southampton University has one of the best LLM Maritime courses in the UK.

I chose Southampton Law School because not only is the Law School a world leader in the maritime law field, it is also a highly rated University for research work.

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 teachers of the Maritime Law are excellent. They are not only professional in the theory knowledge but also full of practical experience since many of them are successful solicitors as well.

The thing I enjoyed most about my course was the rich knowledge and skill the professor had.

The LLM is an excellent academic diploma reflecting the expectations of the professional sector. I have developed my communication skills, my level of legal research, and my capacity to work on broad and stimulating issues in a cross-cultural environment.

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. Participating in the moot was an enriching experience.

My advice to fellow students is - aspire to inspire your fellow classmates and affect change in your wider communities. Taking full advantage of the research facilities and rigorous legal education at Southampton will prepare you to face any challenge in your future careers, both within and outside the legal profession.

I chose the University of Southampton because of its stellar academic and professional reputation in the field, but I soon realised that the Law School offers so much more than that.

My choice of the University of Southampton was carefully considered. After gathering advice from people working in the same field, it has become obvious that the Southampton Law School provides high quality training, mainly because of the excellent reputation achieved by the LLM

The teaching involves different techniques, such as group discussion, debating, etc. There are good chances for me to improve my ability to express my opinion and work together with fellow students.
