- LLM International Maritime Law
The LLM at Swansea University has been one of the best experiences that I have ever had.
Teaching and learning is practical and clear. For instance, the seminars enhanced my understanding of the legal concepts taught in the lectures and also developed my ability to apply the law to the facts. The LLM degree requires daily work which certainly pays off as at the end of the course, students will have acquired an in-depth knowledge of maritime law. In addition, the assessment methods are designed to prepare us for the real live in the legal profession. The courseworks made me dive deeper in some areas, and also clarify concepts. The LLM teaching team has also given us the opportunity to take part in very interesting conferences, networking events and other activities, such as the mooting competition, which was a great experience for me in my capacity as litigator. As a lawyer, I can say that during my LLM at Swansea, I have been not only learning but also practising law. I also felt that the student support at the Department of Shipping and Trade Law is exceptional, making my year at Swansea more comfortable.
