I’m going on to study the New York Bar, and couldn’t have done that without the support of the tutors at Birmingham City University and the plethora of opportunities on offer to enhance my CV."

"The preparation for my internship was rigorous and allowed me to refine my practical lawyering skills. My placement has really let me develop my practical investigative skills, and network a little with experts and attorneys around the office. I am really excited about the work. It is amazing that as a student, I am using the lawyering skills learnt in preparation to make an actual, physical contribution to the lives of people in the legal system that need help the most."
