Luke will be commencing an LLM in International Human Rights Law at Lancaster in October 2016. His dissertation was supervised by Dr Amanda Cahill-Ripley.
My time at Lancaster University has been truly fantastic. Having never studied law before, and with having no family from a legal background, I was naturally a little apprehensive about embarking on a law degree. Looking back now, it is amazing how far I have come in the past three years.
I am currently studying combination of French and Law at Lancaster University. This degree programme takes 4 years and a compulsory part of it is a year abroad. Although it sounds terrifying and intimidating on the first sight (and believe me, it was at the very beginning) it was probably the best year I experienced during my uni life so far.
Victoria Harkness, the Careers Officer of the Law Society writes about the careers events planned for 2015/16.
Catherine Travers graduated with a first class Law (LL.B) degree, she is currently employed as a case handler within the insurance department of Lloyds Bank. Her dissertation was supervised by Dr Catherine Easton.
Lucy Mellor completed the Law LLB (Hons) degree programme and graduated in July 2015 with First-Class Honours. She is currently employed as a paralegal within the Clinical/Medical Negligence department at Slater and Gordon (UK) LLP’s Manchester based offices. She works under the supervision of a Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners commended Partner on high value and maximum severity cases, including complex cerebral palsy, neonatal deaths and actions against private and NHS practitioners under the Fatal Accidents Act. She retains a keen interest in Human Rights and Employment Law, and am looking to apply for training contracts now she has confirmed that she enjoys work concerned with people as opposed to that which is commercial in nature.
