Hi, I'm Charlotte Peignon and I studied LLM Maritime Law within Southampton Law School at the University of Southampton.

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

Although I am a qualified French lawyer and have worked in shipping law firms and companies in Paris and Marseilles, I wanted to broaden my knowledge of the industry, particularly in respect of understanding the workings of international maritime disputes.

My choice of the University of Southampton was carefully considered. After gathering advice from people working in the same field, it became obvious that Southampton Law School provides high quality training, mainly because of the excellent reputation achieved by the LLM. This can be seen through the unanimous positive feedback I have received about the programme and, needless to say, the excellent reputation of the university. This stellar course has provided me with a full appreciation of the nature of risk faced by marine companies as well as an in depth view of maritime business operations.

I have found LLM students are encouraged to be more self-directed in their learning at Southampton, using the extensive resources in the libraries, and believe this emphasis on independent study will be good experience for my future career.

I also welcomed the opportunity to study abroad as I had earlier spent a year in Seville in Spain through the Erasmus programme during my bachelor of laws degree.

After graduation, I am keen to practise in London which is a world-leading centre for shipping.
