Hannah graduated from her LLB (Hons) degree at
Wolverhampton in 2008 and went straight on to achieve her LPC with
distinction a year later.
After choosing the University of Wolverhampton
due to its excellent reputation for Law she wasn’t disappointed.
She tells us: “My lecturers for both courses were very helpful and
always on hand to answer any questions. The LPC
class in particular was excellent as the class size was small which
meant the teaching was of a very high standard and each student
received a lot of support.
I always felt very well prepared and organised
for my exams and found the e-learning technologies, library
resources and IT facilities at Wolverhampton very good in helping
me to gain the most out of my degree.
helped me gain confidence as we would discuss ideas in our seminars
without the intimidation of a large lecture theatre. This developed
more when I went on to study for the LPC. The course was fast paced
and the volume of work and assessments which I had to study for
vastly improved my confidence in myself.
I am now working as Solicitor in family
law. My day-to-day job involves lots of client involvement, I
deal with divorce, financial settlements and Children Act 1989
matters and I am frequently in court. There is a lot of drafting
and advising involved so the people and organisational skills which
I picked up at University are vital.
The LPC taught me the essential skills and
knowledge that I need to practice as a Solicitor, but studying at
University gave me the invaluable time management and organisation
skills that I need to be efficient at my job. I need to be able to
relate to all kinds of different people and I have to be extremely
organised and efficient; so I draw on my experience from seminars
and assessments to be the best I can be.
My advice to any new student would be that
nowadays it is not enough to simply go to University. You need to
get as much work experience as possible and really work on your
skills as well as your academic ones. That’s why the School of
Law, Social Sciences and Communications is so good; the School has
numerous links with Law firms and businesses so you are able to
build up your work experience and develop people skills too. The
School even has its own mock court room
so you can take part in mooting competitions and build up your
confidence with your classmates”.
