I did not realise how useful the knowledge I gained from the University of London would be for my career as a marketer. I believe any senior manager, entrepreneur or business professional would benefit immensely from a sound knowledge of legal principles and its practices. I recommend the LLB as the best option to learn law and gain a world class qualification.Thesara Jayawardena, LLB (Hons), 2013Thesara was head of the marketing division for an international company when she enrolled on the LLB. She is now studying for a PhD in marketing management and working as a university lecturer.
Shaveen Bandaranayake LLB (Hons), 2013
I achieved all my academic qualifications while in Sri Lanka, via distance education. The University of London LLB was notable among my other qualifications primarily due to the flexibility it afforded me to work and study at the same time. I hope to one day pursue an LLM (via distance learning, again) with the University of London!
