I got my law degree in the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú in 2009. I am a partner in a Law Firm in Lima — Peru (Priori & Carrillo Abogados) — where I represent my clients before national courts and arbitration tribunals. Before coming to study my LLM at Queen Mary University of London I was working in my law firm and teaching courses of procedure law at the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú and Universidad Científica del Sur.
Since graduating my field of practice either as a litigator or a teacher has been procedure law and dispute resolution. However, I have always been interested in environmental law given the fact that environmental conflicts require procedure law, in both domestic and international level, to rethink its traditional instruments in order to achieve an adequate protection of the environment. I decided to study at Queen Mary because the scholarship awarded by the QMUL Department of Law gave me the opportunity to specialize in environmental law and to choose from a broad variety of modules.
Once I come back to my country I plan to keep working in my law firm and being a lecturer and researcher. The experiences that I have acquired during my master in QMUL are highly valued in regards to my future carrier. The modules are taught by excellent academics that are very helpful in assisting students, and they encourage us to take an active part in each session. The facilities to study and do our researches for the dissertations, essays or general interests are really comfortable and useful. I have also had the opportunity to build a wide networking given the fact that I have shared my studies and life in London with students from all over the world.
Queen Mary University of London is one of the most important universities in an exciting and cosmopolitan city such as London where there are always academic, social and cultural events to attend and enjoy. Thus I would encourage everyone to come and study there.
