My name is Irene Chiaki Korley-Ayerteye and I graduated from Queen Mary University of London in 2018 with a Master of Laws (LLM) degree in Commercial and Corporate Law.

I chose Queen Mary because of the uniqueness of the variety of specialisms from which to make a choice. For me it was a great experience studying in a prestigious university such as Queen Mary.

I chose modules from International Business Law as well as Commercial and Corporate Law which equipped me with a vast array of knowledge into commercial and Corporate law issues.  As part of my Queen Mary Experience,  I had the opportunity to attend an IP Conference in the beautiful city of Madrid where I met a lot of beautiful people and made a lot of friends some of whom I'm still in contact with. 

I attended the Host Programme which basically ensured that students get the opportunity to spend one Christmas weekend with a British family and I really had lots of fun when I travelled to Winchester and spent the weekend with my Host.

As a result of this programme, my host nominated me to attend a Summer School in Austria where I met other students from other European countries and indeed, I learnt alot at the Summer school. This was a rare opportunity which added alot to my International experience. 

I had a fantastic experience at CCLS, where I served as a Course Rep, a role that brought me into contact with students from all over the world. The atmosphere at Queen Mary is so vibrant and friendly which left unforgettable memories on my mind.

The facilities for teaching and learning are excellent with experienced lecturers who are on top of their game.

Going to Queen Mary has greatly improved my personality and exposed me to better ways of thinking with new ideas. 

 Do not hesitate to drop me an email if you are considering a Course at Queen Mary.
