What our students say
Deborah Regal, United Kingdom
“I chose the programme for its flexibility. 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 offset that it was going to be good; I didn’t realise how good it was going to be. I’d recommend the University of London LLM to anybody.“
Deborah, a graduate of the University of London LLM, works in client management at an international provider of stock market indexes. She is also completing a PhD at SOAS, University of London. See more from Deborah and other inspirational alumni in our Postgraduate Laws video and our prospectus.
