What our students say about Law Prep
“UH law prep opened doors to my University studies years after I had thought the opportunity had passed me by.”
Dan Berger, graduated with First Class Honours in 2010. He was a member of the UH team which won the ESU/Essex Court Chambers National Mooting Competition in 2008 and he represented the UK in Hong Kong at the Commonwealth Mooting Competition in 2009.
“Not only did I find UH Law Prep an interesting and informative introduction to the study of law, it was both challenging and enjoyable too. I cannot recommend the course highly enough.”
Kevin Grix, graduated with a 2:1 in 2007 and is now a Barrister and Head of the Furniture Ombudsman .
“The UH Law Prep experience was hugely valuable, particularly as I had been out of full time study for more years than I care to remember. The friends I made during a fairly intensive time made my return to study much more enjoyable.”
Sandy Dallimore, graduated with a First Class Honours Degree in 2011. Sandy was also an adviser in our Law Clinic and one of our Streetlaw presenters.
