I chose LSE because of its prestigious reputation: the leading scholars, world-renowned programmes of study, the fantastic location and its politically active student body.
I love the location of the LSE Law Department. We're in the core of London's legal sphere; next to the Courts, law firms and chambers, the Inns of Courts and Parliament.
The academics in the Law Department are all experts in their fields. As law students, we are continually challenged by our teachers to examine new ways of understanding the law's role in modern society. The diversity and background of students at the School makes each seminar an intellectually stimulating experience.
Some of my best memories at LSE were spent with the societies and clubs of the Students' Union. I've benefited greatly from my involvement in Itchy Feet, the travel society, and Amnesty International. I've led trips across the world, launched a journal, raised funds for political prisoners of conscience and met dozens of similarly passionate and dedicated students.
When I graduate I'd like to develop my interest in human rights law. I'm currently researching postgraduate programmes in the Centre for the Study of Human Rights and I would love to work for a civil liberties or campaigning organisation in the future.
