Student Quotes

Jake Loomes:

“Ultimately I was attracted to Swansea by the forward thinking ethos of the College of Law and the clear recognition of the need to provide students not only with passionately delivered lectures, but also with the necessary skills and work opportunities to prepare them for a career post-graduation. “The College of Law at Swansea is one of the top in Wales, and puts great emphasis on facilitating employment opportunities via placements for several students every year  (something that I was privileged enough to be part of during my second year). The unwavering effort and support of my personal and academic tutors has been invaluable in helping me learn and fuelling my passion for the law. I was also attracted to Swansea for its unrivalled location - a stone’s throw away from the beach, Mumbles and the Gower - it really doesn’t get much better than that! “My main career aspiration is to be a barrister at the commercial and chancery bar, an aim that has been reaffirmed as part of my recent Scholarship Award from COMBAR (Commercial Bar Association) which provided me with the opportunity to work with a leading commercial barristers’ chamber in London as well as the opportunity to shadow a High Court Judge.” 

Catherine Morse:

"My three years studying law at Swansea University has been memorable. Not only have I obtained a degree in a subject that I'm passionate about but I have also made some great lifelong friends, gained valuable experience through work experience placements and an internship and I have developed and matured both intellectually and as a person, all of which will benefit me in my future and chosen career path. I aspire to be a solicitor and am staring the LPC in Swansea in 2015. "
