More about Abigail

Why did you choose NTU and Nottingham Law School?

Nottingham Law School has an excellent reputation amongst law firms and chambers. The facilities are second-to-none and the course fees are more affordable than other providers.

Why did you choose postgraduate study at NTU?

I met a few members of the teaching staff before I enrolled and was impressed by them. NTU was also more affordable than other BPTC providers (and commutable from my home), so it was the obvious choice.

What have you enjoyed about your course?

My colleagues were fabulous. The BPTC is very interactive in some areas, but very dry in others, so it was very much a shared experience/trial. I met lifelong friends on the BPTC.

What marks out of 10 would you give for course facilities and why?

Ten out of ten. The court rooms are authentic and there are dedicated BPTC study rooms in the library.

How would you promote NTU to potential students in 10 words or fewer?

An excellent university in a great city - everything you need!

What’s next for you after NTU?

I am now a Pupil Barrister at Ropewalk Chambers in Nottingham.

What three words would you use to describe Nottingham?

Vibrant, compact and sustainable.

Where would you recommend visiting in Nottingham?

If you’re a runner (or walker) I recommend a few laps around Wollaton Park, particularly in the morning or evening.

Did you find it easy to make friends at NTU?

Yes, it’s a very collegiate atmosphere.
