Anwesha Chatterjee

During her time at LJMU, Anwesha was a course representative, which complimented her law MA, allowing her to put her training into practice. She liaised between students and staff contributing towards making the course and student experience the best it could be.

LJMU’s plethora of social and academic societies was completely embraced by Anwesha who was quick to become a member of the moot court society. The group compete in presenting legal issues and problems against an opposing council and before a judge. It is perhaps the closest experience that a student can have to appearing in court whilst at university.

“I represented the law school at moot court competitions and worked as a research assistant for the school of law as well.”

Anwesha thoroughly enjoyed her time at LJMU and thought the course content was tailor-made to her areas of interest; “It allowed me to focus on areas of law that I am truly passionate about. I learned to work and research in a more critical way as a postgraduate student.”

The LLM graduate also took advantage of LJMU’s varied career services which she says, “are unparalleled.”

“I had received help from them about PhD applications while I was in Liverpool and the best part is that I still continue to receive help with applications and cover letters for PhD studies from LJMU.”

Anwesha’s Masters degree laid down the foundations for her career as an academic. She feels privileged to be a part of LJMU’s active alumni network.

“Even though I am no longer studying at LJMU, the alumni network helps me feel connected to me peers.”
