Our students talk about their experiences so far

Goldsmiths has impacted me by exposing me to lots of legal experience, speaking with barristers and judges, working in the law clinic, and competing in various intercollegiate moots. I have developed my self-discipline, confidence and academic abilities, really honing me into the person I have become – for which I have the faculty and their personable approach to thank.
