University of Buckingham - Law Alumni - Success Stories

Jenna Walker (LLB 2015)

Like most candidates at the University of Buckingham, I was eager to complete my degree in the accelerated two-year timeframe so as to save costs. Before University I wasn’t sure on the career path I wanted to follow but had an intellectual curiosity around law. The pace of learning at Buckingham was challenging yet achievable and I relished the small class sizes and varied content. Read more

Jannis Bille (LLB 2013)

The University and its Law School attracted me for three main reasons. First, being German I had to complete nine months of national service before starting University, so the two year LLB allowed me to obtain my degree in an expedited fashion, regaining valuable time. Secondly, the student-staff ratio at Buckingham allows them to offer tutorials with five or six students at most, which has allowed me to have a focused and tailored learning experience. Read more

Charles Hogan (LLB 2015)

I was 25 years old when I began my studies, and felt that it would be an advantage to complete my law degree in two years rather than three.  This was particularly important given that I intended to train as a barrister, which required at least a further year of study on the Bar Professional Training Course (“BPTC”), as well as further time spent working in the legal sector which is almost a prerequisite to obtaining pupillage.

As a Canadian Criminology student, I imagined I would spend a copious amount of time applying to, and then attending, law school in Canada, then I discovered the University of Buckingham.

Philippa Parry-Jones (LLB 2013)

I decided on studying at the Law School at the University of Buckingham because I liked the concept of a two-year degree with a high proportion of small and regular tutorial groups. I very much enjoyed my time at the University and the experiences, both curricular and extracurricular, have helped to shape my career. It was the compulsory mooting module that first sparked my interest in advocacy and started me on the road to becoming a barrister! Read more

Carmen Safavi (LLB 2013)

I joined the University of Buckingham in September 2011, knowing very little about its history, its people or the variety of courses that it offered.

Although the prospect of starting a condensed law degree was daunting (having come straight from sixth form with a scientific A-Level background) Read more

David Stubbs

David Stubbs (LLB 2004)

As a Bermudian, I heard about Buckingham many years ago. My brother and many other Bermudian lawyers are Buckingham graduates. After I decided that I wanted to retrain as a lawyer, with a view to changing careers and returning to Bermuda, Buckingham was a sensible option: I wanted to do an LLB rather than a CPE/GDL, but with a family to support I wanted to obtain my degree as efficiently as possible. Read more

I heard about the University of Buckingham and its law programme in 2013 through an alumna who had qualified as a lawyer in Toronto, Canada.
