Kani Shwani, LLM student

Kani Shwani recently graduated from the LLB at the University of Derby and then moved straight onto the LLM Commercial Law as a full-time student.

Choosing to stay at Derby after the LLB

"I chose to take the LLM because, while I was doing my undergraduate degree, I realised that I did not want to practise but that I really wanted to study a masters in law because I wanted to widen my knowledge and research skills. I chose Derby because I really liked the environment and the lecturers and because it was offering the LLM that I really wanted." 

Personal highlights so far

"I am enjoying the course, especially the fact that we get to be in control of what we want our dissertation to be about. At the same time I am enjoying improving my research skills. We have to think 'outside of the box' which is interesting and enjoyable, but also demanding."

Preparing me for my future career

"The course so far has helped me realise that there are many options regarding my future career. For instance, I could undertake a PhD, work as a researcher in the field of law or specifically in the field of commercial law, or become a lecturer. I am still considering my options and intend to pick wisely."
