Elina Rage, from Latvia, studied the Master of Laws (LLM) in International Economic Law at Warwick Law School, The University of Warwick
Why did you choose this institution and course?
Warwick Law School was my top choice because of its internationally-renowned teaching excellence. In comparison with other universities I visited, Warwick's campus is more akin to those of its American counterparts, with everything you may need on your doorstep. I was particularly attracted to Warwick's vibrant academic and social life, and it was also important for me that top employers actively visited the campus throughout the year.
What does the course involve?
Warwick enables you to tailor the degree to your specific interests. I especially valued the lecturers' international expertise as advisers to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Trade Organisation (WTO), World Bank, various European authorities and non-governmental organisations, and Warwick's unique 'law in context' approach, which allowed me to gain an interdisciplinary understanding of the subject.
What are your plans for after graduation?
I'm currently working as a research assistant to one of the professors in the department, but
I've managed to secure a traineeship at the European Central Bank.
What advice would you give to those considering the course?
To get the most out of your degree, be ready to seize the various opportunities on offer to grow both as a professional and individual. The academic calendar is bustling with events, which are great for making connections and learning from industry experts visiting the campus.
