Law LLB(Hons) with professional experience: What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Fiorella Sofia Badin Biccire

Name: Fiorella Sofia Badin Biccire
Course: Law LLB(Hons)
Level: third year

"The main reason I decided to study law is because it plays a vital role in the society that we live in. Without law and order, we would live in a very different and unpleasant world.

I chose to study at Kingston University due to its fantastic location. Kingston Upon Thames offers plenty to do and it feels like a village, yet it's really easy to get to central London.

"The course is also great and offers many guest presentations by speakers which I think is really useful. The graduate employment record is also high."

 

Hazal Bahceci

Name: Hazal Bahceci
Course: Law LLB(Hons)
Level: third year

"I chose the Law LLB(Hons) course as I found it very interesting, and I believe that a law degree can open a lot of other career opportunities.

I have recently completed a one-year part-time placement at a solicitors firm in north London. I worked as a legal assistant and helped the criminal and family department deal with clients, barristers and Legal Services Commission.

My tasks involved writing letters, phone calls and dealing with the files as well as administration duties.

I would recommend this course to everyone who likes challenges."

 

Bawar Hamad

Name: Bawar Hamad
Course: Law LLB(Hons)
Level: third year

"I knew my interest in law and politics would grow at Kingston, because of the background of some of the lecturers. Some are incredibly highly regarded nationally and internationally.

I wouldn't change my course for any other course. I am stimulated academically and challenged on a daily basis – allowing me to improve and enhance my abilities. I have already undertaken two internships, one of which I am currently conducting at Glade Law where my position is a recognised paralegal. This provides me with the ability to enhance my commercial awareness, have one-to-one client contact and heavy exposure to legal research and cases.

My grandfather – who is my inspiration – was the only judge in a small city in Iraq. Throughout my childhood and adult life, everyone has spoken highly of him. I hope to one day to leave the same legacy."

"I knew I wanted to be a barrister and one of my mum's friends told me that Kingston had a very good law school, so that's why I came here. I have found the teachers friendly and approachable. They are quite willing to sit and discuss things with you. Some really go out of their way to make sure you are keeping up-to-date with everything.

I've liked the way the School staff encourage you to get involved with extra-curricular activity. One of the things that I have really enjoyed was a trip to Europe to visit the EU institutions and the Court of Justice. It was interesting and gave me a real insight into how these organisations actually work.

The mooting competitions (arguing a case for the prosecution or defence) have been another highlight of the course. They improve your skills, and doing them gives you a lot of confidence. I represented the University in the District Law School Mooting Competition.

I have also joined the University Law Society and the Students' Union. I was a course representative for the Students' Union and deputy chairperson for the Student Council. That was really interesting. You see another side of university life.

However, in the third year I wasn't able to be so involved because there's a lot more hard work. I had several deadlines that were quite close together. But I found the University staff very supportive. They helped me plan my time, advising me when to do things and where to focus my efforts."
