How did you come to choose to study at CCLS?
During my search for an LLM programme, I reviewed several points like the rankings or the reputation, in which QMUL always stands out. What made me decide to study at CCLS was the broad range of courses to choose from. The International Economic Law programme allowed me to merge trade and investment as I imagined it.
What was your favourite memory as a CCLS student?
There are so many beautiful memories to choose from. One of my favourites was our visit to Cumberland Lodge; the place is amazing and I met my best friends there. It was so nice to have the time to get to know everyone in a relaxed environment at the beginning of the year.
What does being a member of the CCLS community mean to you?
It is a privilege. The Professors are the best in their areas and the fellow alumni are outstanding colleagues.
How did your CCLS experience contribute to your career?
Definitely my LLM allows me to have better job opportunities and the knowledge I gained is crucial for my current position and for the future. It gave me a broad understanding of the dynamics between trade and investment.
Why do you think prospective students should study at CCLS?
CCLS will provide you with the best experience possible, because you will have recognised and very up-to-date Professors, a beautiful environment to study in and all the tools that you will need to succeed. It will also provide you an active social and academic life, having the time to make contacts. It is an intense and satisfying year, and when everything ends, you will treasure all those memories.
