The Department of Law

What I love most about the LSE Law Department is that their door is always open. Being encouraged to freely speak to academics has helped inspire me to discover the things I am passionate about, and the support I have received along the way has been absolutely incredible.

Isabel Hahn, LLB Bachelor of Laws
