LLM in IEL 2011-2012
Having worked with a leading corporate/ commercial law firm in Nigeria for about two years, I sought an LLM programme that would give me a broader perspective of corporate transactions. Without a doubt, the International Economic Law (IEL) programme was a good decision in this regard.
With modules in international corporate finance, international mergers and acquisitions, transnational investment law and international taxation of business among others, I gained a better understanding of contemporary perspectives regarding, corporate transactions.
My Warwick experience exceeded my expectations and was more than simply a means of academic progression. Several careers and skills workshops were incorporated into the Masters programme, all of which have contributed to both my personal and professional development. The University has various accommodation, a well-equipped on-site and online library, a bookshop, an Arts Centre with a cinema and theatre, a supermarket, health centre and pharmacy, a chaplaincy, a fully functional gym and several restaurants - all of which can be found on one campus and within easy walking distance - indeed one could not ask for more.
Where are they now?
Following my LLM, I returned better equipped to my job in Nigeria with Ajumogobia and Okeke (Barristers & Solicitors) where I work as an Associate.
