Student stories

Katherine Matyja

Master of Laws

My lecturers and guest speakers were legal experts genuinely passionate about engaging LLM students. They have all worked in the field and understand the complexities of the law. I developed research and analytical thinking skills, which are applicable in any legal field. My LLM has given me the confidence to start working in a new area of law, knowing I have the legal foundation and support network to succeed.
