Swansea Law School offers internationally recognized LLM programmes
Since 2000, the School of Law at Swansea University has offered LLM degree programs dedicated to international shipping, trade and commerce law. These programmes are continuing to expand and both their profile and reputation have grown. Swansea is now recognized as a leader in these specialized legal spheres.
The students attracted to these programmes bring a vibrant diversity to the Law School’s academic, cultural, and social life. Attracted by the international recognition of the LLM degrees, Ince & Co (the international law firm, with a network of offices in Dubai, Hamburg, Hong Kong, Le Havre, London, Paris, Piraeus, Shanghai and Singapore) has recently introduced an annual prize for the student who achieves the highest grade in the taught element of any of the LLM programmes. A condition of the award is that the winning student’s specialisation on the LLM Programme has a direct connection with the work undertaken by the firm.
The winner of this year’s prize, Florian Schulz, was presented with the award by James Wilson, the Senior Partner of Ince & Co, at a ceremony held at the firm’s London office on 2 July 2008. Florian is completing his LLM degree in International Maritime Law at Swansea, having graduated from the University of Heidelberg in Germany.
Speaking at the ceremony, Mr Wilson wished Florian well for his studies and professional life and commended the members of the School of Law at Swansea for the service they provide to the sector in delivering LLM degrees which are contemporary and practical.
