What do Arden students think of their Law Degree?

I am working for a global firm in a quite senior position, and my hope is that my LLB journey will inspire one or two colleagues (younger or at my age) to do something similar. Giving yourself a good challenge, proving your capabilities and widen your horizon…it's a great experience! Doing the law degree has opened a lot of new job opportunities which I did not have before. It made me more marketable within the job sector.”
