Please tell us a bit about yourself and your background.
I am a Mauritian. I studied for two years in Malaysia at INTI International University before transferring to the University of Leeds in September 2015. I graduated this July.
What motivated you to apply to study your chosen course and why did you chose Leeds?
I have an ardent interest in research and Leeds is one of the best ranked law schools. Its final year dissertation option is what stood out to me.
What do you think of your course, have there been any particular highlights for you?
Overall the LLB course has been very enriching. The final year dissertation has definitely been the highlight. It gave me the opportunity to undertake independent research work, to go beyond textbooks and articles and use my legal reasoning and critical analysis.
Furthermore, I had the opportunity to participate in the British Conference of Undergraduate Research 2016 where I presented my research work on a national platform. Independent research definitely equips you with the skills a lawyer needs.
How would you describe the help and guidance provided by the staff within the School of Law?
We were provided with guidance from day one and the staff were always available and helpful.
Have you been involved in extra-curricular activities, such as societies, summer placements etc? How have these enhanced your experience at the university?
The British Conference of Undergraduate Research 2016 was a golden networking opportunity and a confidence booster. As well as this I initiated and led a campaign aimed at creating awareness about domestic violence in the university (woMANup). We hosted an event with outside speakers from various organisations and successfully advocated for the union to work on a domestic violence campaign in the Better Union Forum.
