LLB graduate and Volvo Ocean Race Logistics Director
"I would recommend the LLB to anyone planning a legal or business career. It provides a very solid grounding in legal research, application and presentation, all of which are applicable across many sectors of industry and are not just confined to law. I would recommend NUI Galway for the mix it provides through its overseas lecturers and interntional students.
Galway itself is a very international city. In other cities, the University gets lost in the city and, with it, the student experience. In Galway, the university is a fundamental part of the city. Studying in Galway gives great students a great perspective on what exactly the world has to offer. Studying in NUI Galway, a great university on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, subconsciously instills a frontier mentality and the desire to go find it.”
"The flexibility offered by the part-time mode of the LLB programme was central to my decision to study law at NUI Galway. While challenging, the availability of night-time lectures helped me to successfully combine work and study. Attaining the LLB has enhanced my career options by expanding both my legal knowledge and skills base."
