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.

My LLB (Hons) European Legal Studies degree gave me a robust education in English common law and French civil law. More specifically, the solid foundation in legal reasoning and analysis built during my studies was central to my work in several jurisdictions across the world, both in private practice and in-house at the United Nations.   

Furthermore, the faculty’s stellar research facilities provided ample opportunities to exchange ideas with academics and hone my legal writing skills, which proved invaluable. For example, while at Southampton Law School, I co-authored the Encyclopaedia of International Aviation Law and wrote the lead article in Legal Matters, the University of Southampton Law Society magazine.  

The law school nurtured both my academic and extra-curricular achievements which catapulted me to the eighth position in Future Leaders magazine’s list of 100 of the United Kingdom’s most outstanding black students and new graduates.  

I will always remember my time at Southampton as rewarding indeed, especially as I decided to spend another year at the faculty to complete the prestigious LLM in maritime law.
