LLM Commercial Law

Student View

I began my study of law completing the BCL degree and then subsequently this year undertaking the LLM Commercial Law Masters at the UCD School of Law. I have really enjoyed analysing, discussing and arguing about legal issues and problems both throughout my under-graduate BCL degree and this year undertaking the LLM Commercial Law Masters. I have thoroughly enjoyed my years here at Roebuck Castle and it is with some regret that I graduate this year.

Among my favourites in the LLM were advanced torts in semester one, and commercial arbitration in semester two. The LLM programme is uniquely tailored in UCD to expose each student to different ways of thinking and presenting their research and knowledge, offering a wide range of subjects and specialised Master’s programmes in Law to cater for all interests and career plans. This is clearly demonstrated in the dissertation module, with each student obliged to graphically represent their dissertation topic in the form of an A3 poster . This was by far one aspect of the LLM programme in UCD I thoroughly enjoyed as it allowed one express themselves imaginatively and outside the usual legal and academic assessment constraints.

As for my plans for the future, I plan on sitting the Kings Inns exams this August and under-taking the BL degree in order to qualify as a barrister in Dublin. While this is sure to be extremely challenging, I have no doubt that my time at the UCD School of Law and both the BCL degree and the LLM Masters here, have adequately prepared me.
