Student profile

We are looking for solid students, students who have demonstrated a commitment to excellence and to hard work. We look carefully at the personal statement required by the application to see what is important to our students. We are far more impressed by activities undertaken because students were interested in them than in long lists of clubs joined solely for the purpose of enhancing a law school application.

Average starting salary

Fully depends on the country and the type of work.
