LLB Law: Accelerated Graduate

Kirsten's Story

My first degree was in Biochemistry but my interest in studying law was sparked when I worked for a major public inquiry in Scotland after I left Canada to travel. I considered lots of different postgraduate options but the Accelerated LLB at Stirling appealed to me because the staff were so friendly and welcoming.

From day one I wanted to be able to hit the ground running because it is a full-on packed programme and I felt that Stirling offered an environment that I could settle into quickly. The Law staff were always approachable and helpful which is so important when you are doing four modules a semester rather than the usual three.

I enjoyed my time at the Stirling Law School and am now a fully qualified solicitor working in infrastructure, planning and litigation. There is never a dull day in the job!
