LLM in Intellectual Property Law
"I decided to undertake a postgraduate degree as I wanted to deepen my knowledge and understanding of Intellectual Property (IP) law which I started studying as part of the LLB. I also believe that given the enormous competition for places in the job market, that having an LLM will increase my chances of getting the job I want.
Queen Mary is one of the UK's leading institutions in IP Law. The professors are experts in the IP field and have a lot of practical experience. The choice of IP law modules is great - this year they are running 17 different modules.
The university offers a wide range of support programmes to complement their courses. These include English language classes, critical thinking sessions, dissertation writing sessions and various careers events. They also organise numerous social events such as day trips or LLM postgraduate parties.
Queen Mary provided a useful checklist of things to be done prior to and after arrival. The staff were very helpful in replying to any e-mail queries regarding various issues. They also offered assistance with accommodation, including checking the tenancy agreements which has come in handy.
There are many opportunities, such as various Queen Mary student societies to get involved with and everyone is very friendly and welcoming.
Lincoln's Inn Fields, the home of the Centre for Commercial Legal Studies, is located in the heart of London's world of lawyers with institutions such as the Royal Courts of Justice and the Law Society just around the corner."
