At the same time as indulging my interest in criminal law, I could pursue my interest in human rights, for example. The quality of the programme is exceptional. I knew from the outset that it was going to be good – I didn't realise how good it was going to be.
I was inspired by my LLM and my study of the human rights of women to write a book on women's entrepreneurship, looking globally at how women have created business, furthered themselves, and helped their families get out of poverty by using entrepreneurial ideas.
I'd recommend the University of London LLM to anybody.
