LLM International Commercial Law (Pathway) student, Jolanda Muller, tells us more about her experience studying at Birmingham Law School.
Why did you choose the LLM at the University of Birmingham?
“The LLM at the University of Birmingham convinced me because of its wide range in modules offered. I liked how one can choose a specialised pathway or simply enrol in any module one likes.
What has been the highlight of your programme?
“The highlight of my LLM programme has been the whole second semester. I loved all my modules, and, in a way, they all were connected to each other! Studying subjects that were all very close to my chosen pathway, International Commercial Law, I always noticed similar issues coming up and case law that was relevant for several areas of law.”
What have you learnt from your programme?
“The LLM programme has taught me to think critically about law. Policy discussions make up a large part of the seminars – the substantive law is usually expected to be learnt from the reading materials over the week.”
What is life like as a student at the University of Birmingham?
“As a student at the University of Birmingham, you study on a large and pretty campus that provides everything a student needs: Lecture halls and seminar rooms (obviously!), a fancy new library, food for any time of day, coffee, and a really well equipped sports centre with many cool sports club offers.”
