Meet our LLM in International Maritime Law Graduate, Karin Garfjeld Roberts:
“I loved every single minute of my time in Swansea! The LLM experience was very rewarding and enjoyable as you get to learn alongside students from all over the world.

The School organised numerous visits to law firms and insurance companies, and there were weekly guest lectures from experts in the maritime industry. I was also able to complete an internship in London at international law firm Holman Fenwick Willan.”
