Southampton is my new home. Here I feel welcomed all the time, I feel I receive all the support I need, here I am encouraged to improve myself.

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 would recommend choosing Southampton Law School because of the unrivalled enthusiasm from staff who are leaders in their respective subjects. The faculty at Southampton make studying the law fun and interesting.

There are a wealth of relevant and stimulating opportunities on offer for students willing to engage with the course beyond their reading lists.

I chose Southampton as my first choice due to the fact on open days it stressed the employability of Southampton students as well as the possibility of a scholarship for achieving over and above the grades.

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.

The most valuable experiences in my time here emerged from the opportunities to meet and form bonds with people from several different walks of life through life at halls, in school and out of the classroom.

Being a law student at Southampton has allowed me to pursue my ambitions in an environment that is inspirational, safe and intellectually stimulating. I could not have chosen a better law school.

Having the opportunity to be taught, and get to know, some of the best legal minds in the country meant the chance to gain the best legal education possible.

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.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my University experience, my highlights of studying Law here are the day I visited Winchester Court on what turned out to be a very dramatic and exciting case.

Come in with a positive attitude and a willingness to try something new, come in with an open mind, and you may have one of the best experiences of your life!

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.

There are many opportunities to get involved. I’ve found being a part of societies and committees has given me the chance to interact with students and staff. This has been a really valuable and rewarding experience.

I regularly attended Law School events, guest lectures, and networking and social events outside of the University. The employability skills programme was really beneficial in helping me think about my future career and giving me the tools to network and discover what I need to do to get to where I want to be

One of the reasons that I’m so passionate about criminal law and know extra bits and pieces that I can use in my volunteering is because of the Law School and how much I have learnt in my time there so far.

Southampton Law School has given me all the help and encouragement I could ever need. The programme is really good, it is challenging but there is a lot of support along the way.

Studying at Southampton, I could not have hoped for a better student experience. The law school also provides first class support, whether academic or pastoral, which really helps every student make the most out of studying what is admittedly a difficult but stimulating subject.

The availability and willingness of the of Law School staff to answer any queries you may have and to assist in any way possible with your studies is invaluable. This coupled with the support offered by the various student led societies makes for a personal and fulfilling experience, both academically and socially.

The skills I’ve learnt so far during my degree, such as critical thinking, analysis, psychological knowledge and advocacy have really helped me. Southampton has shown me that I can do whatever I put my mind to.

My main advice would be to embrace all the opportunities that are offered. There are so many great events and competitions to get involved with throughout the year which are a great environment in which to ‘find your feet’.
