The University of Warwick is committed to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.
Our Diverse Community
We're proud to welcome students and staff from over 90 different countries from around the world, from all races, backgrounds, religions and sexualities.
Welcoming international students is in our DNA and we've prided ourselves on the international diversity of our student community for over fifty years. Internationalism is one of the cornerstones of Warwick Law School and we are proud of the strengths and values our diversity represents.
Living, working and studying with each other gives us all a better insight into our global community and lets us share our culture, our history and perspective.
Warwick’s IEL programme provides an excellent platform for me to explore both public and commercial law from a legal, philosophical, political, and economic perspective. The programme’s “law in context” approach enables me to understand the way law is applied in policy making and commercial situations. As part of my study, I assess critically how Brexit, the rise of China, and Trump's presidency affect trade; whilst looking at how the WTO shapes the governance framework of international business relationships in detail. The open academic environment encourages me to apply my business background in understanding how mergers and acquisitions are structured; how tax planning works; how parties negotiate a credit agreement; and how financial regulations operate, for example.
The best aspect of the IEL programme is the unlimited opportunity to engage in high level discussions with not only the academics, but also with other LLM students. The LLM cohort’s diversity in terms of professional experience, nationality, and culture enriches my experience at Warwick and will undoubtedly help me in my quest to travel around the world!
Joining EY Audit and Assurance – Financial Services team in London this autumn as an associate, I will be applying the skills and knowledge gained through Warwick’s IEL programme in my work with financial institutions to assess their financial position, risk management, and compliance process.
LLM International Development Law & Human Rights 2016-17
With eight years of experience in commercial litigation in a top law firm in Mexico, I felt it was time to scale up my knowledge to an international level by studying an LLM. I found International Commercial Law at the University of Warwick overwhelmingly attractive for two main reasons. Firstly, the programme allows me to choose highly specialised modules within a great variety of options, thereby enabling me to view legal issues from an international perspective and enhancing my career opportunities. Secondly, the worldwide reputation of the university not only signals its education quality, but also gives me access to an elite alumni network with all of its advantages and benefits. Along with these outstanding features, the thorough support provided by the staff of this institution during my admission process was a token that this university is genuinely devoted to the success of its students.
My academic experience at Warwick has surpassed my expectations. Moreover, the benefits I have been enjoying expand beyond academics, making this experience unique. Being part of a large international community of students at the University of Warwick has provided me with the opportunity to meet people from all around the world and learn a lot from different cultures. Additionally, I have been able to achieve a healthy and active lifestyle with Warwick´s top-notch and easily accessible sports facilities. Furthermore, as traveling is one of my favourite hobbies, I also find the university´s location quite a convenient place to easily reach my destinations, both within the U.K. and Europe.
