Besides this, conferences are constantly set up in the different universities of London getting together experts, academics, practitioners, students. For this reason, I have the great feeling that I live in the heart of a place where the future of environmental law is shaped. I deeply benefit from the intellectual emulation that emerges from these activities. Moreover, I am currently working with some students of different UK universities on the organisation of the 5th Annual Public Interest in Environmental Law Conference, the UK's only student-led conference of its kind. Thanks to its substantive financial support, Queen Mary enables us to achieve this very challenging objective. On the whole, undertaking the LLM programme at Queen Mary is a global experience through which I acquire worthy tools for my future. The scholarship I was generously granted by Queen Mary helps me to further value these opportunities. I have a job which starts in October with a Belgian law firm called Liedekerke.
''Since graduating I have worked for an international law firm in its Kazakhstan office. By advising foreign companies doing business in Kazakhstan and working with colleagues from all over the world, I became convinced that the knowledge and skills that I would develop within the framework of the LLM program would help me to substantially improve the quality of my work. I chose Queen Mary because it came first on many criteria. The lectures were taught by remarkable professors and were tremendously rich in content. Study time was extremely active, since we participated in lectures and tutorials, presented seminars, joined in discussion groups as well as attended various conferences. I want to highlight that my fellow students on the LLM programme came from more than 80 different jurisdictions, which has broadened my general, as well as legal knowledge. I have formed many friendships with my international classmates.''
In addition to the Queen Mary Library and the British Library, postgraduate students are able to access the well-stocked law library at the University of London’s Institute of Advanced Legal Studies (IALS). The Institute, located at Russell Square, a few minutes’ walk from Lincoln’s Inn Fields, is one of the major law libraries worldwide. You will also have access to the University of London Library at Senate House.
As well as housing the Law Library and a European Documentation Centre, the Queen Mary Library at Mile End provides access to all the main British, European and international textbooks, law reports and periodicals and also offers one of the best commercial law collections in the country. Through the University of London College network, students have access to an unrivalled range of electronic law journals and databases.
You will have access to facilities and equipment at the Postgraduate School of Law Centre in Lincoln's Inn Fields, which comprises workstations, wireless internet access, projectors and a common room. The Graduate Centre at Mile End campus will also provide work areas and social spaces tailored specifically to the needs and working patterns of postgraduate students.
Climate change is a universal problem with far reaching consequences for all governments, industry, societies and individuals. The LLM in Environmental Law examines all the political and legal issues concerning environmental protection, climate change policies, natural resources law, with an overarching emphasis on the impact of gas and oil.

For one month, together with law students from all of the world, I studied three important courses Introduction to American law, International Financial Law, and WTO and China, all delivered by American professors.
In coping with those specific cases, I applied my knowledge on one hand and, on the other hand, I developed a more direct and practical understanding of the laws in international economy and trade, as well as relevant international conventions, that I had learned in class.
With the rapid scientific and technological advances, social progress and media proliferation, the economies of various countries in the world are becoming increasingly interdependent, and economic globalization has become a tendency that no one can reverse.
Cambridge Faculty of Law offers the opportunity to undertake a cutting-edge research degree in a lively, diverse and well-established scholarly community at one of the world’s leading research institutions.
An important extracurricular experience is our Law School’s Moot Court Contest at which my team members and I won the first prize through close collaboration and teamwork.
In 2002, my academic performance qualified me as one of the four students from the entire mainland to go to Korea to attend a course program.
My objective is to grasp in-depth knowledge in international economy and trade, and especially the knowledge of the laws and regulations in those two fields in the world’s major economic forces like the United States and European Union.
To deepen my study, I read most of the classical works on the subject and my voluminous reading encompassed International Trade Law by Clive Schmitthoff and International Finance by Hal S.
The School of Law has consistently been ranked in the top 10 law schools in the UK for the quality of our research and teaching, and many of our internationally recognised staff act as advisers to governments, industry and NGOs, both nationally and internationally.
