“If I had the opportunity to travel back in time, it would be to my LLM year in Swansea. A great atmosphere, dedicated academic staff and peaceful city.
It was the LLM which helped me achieve in my career. Now being the Head of the Maritime Law Committee of the Istanbul Bar, Chairman of the Disciplinary Committee at the Turkish Chamber of Shipping, a Law Lecturer, and the Managing Partner of my own law firm, all started in Swansea.”
