"The law school has excellent teaching staff who expect the best from every student and who are willing to provide extra help and one on one attention in order for each student to achieve their maximum potential…… Classes are academically exciting as well as challenging….The Graduate LLB was a very international class; you have individuals from all over the world as peers.
"There is so much to see and do and experience in London….so much history at your doorstep with the Parliament Buildings, Westminster Abbey, St Paul's Cathedral, Buckingham Palace and the British Museum… There is always something exciting to do, from going shopping on Oxford Street, to strolling through Hyde Park, eating at one of the many amazing restaurants or taking in a West End play or show… London is a great base to travel to nearby cities in Europe."
