Volunteering at the Legal Advice Centre.

What are your plans after graduation? How do you feel studying at Manchester has prepared you for this?

I plan to pursue a career in the financial services industry focusing on research and advisory roles.
Studying at Manchester has not only equipped me with technical know-how, it has also made me more bold, confident and provided me with plenty of opportunities to link up with prospective employers.

What advice would you give to new Law students at Manchester?

Make sure you enjoy every aspect of your study and take advantage of all that the University has to offer. Make sure you volunteer at the Legal Advice Centre. You’ll be glad you did.
