Jannis Bille (LLB 2013)
As a German, I chose to study for a law degree in the UK for two principal reasons. First, I wished to consolidate my language skills. Secondly, studying English Law particularly interested me, as it is a highly prevalent legal system globally, under which significant commercial activity is conducted. I, therefore, knew this path would open significant career opportunities for me.

During my time at the Law School, I was actively involved in the Law Society, serving as Executive Member, Secretary and Vice-President, and was also elected Undergraduate Representative to Senate and Council. This involvement on the administrative and political level of the University allowed me to actively participate in shaping the university experience, and I learned a lot about organisation, planning and leadership. The Law School, academics and even the Vice-Chancellor were always approachable whenever I had a request, complaint or issue that needed the University’s attention.
I completed an LLM at UCL to deepen my legal understanding and, following a vacation scheme, I am undertaking a training contract at Herbert Smith, the leading London law firm.
In summary, I learned a lot at Buckingham, a time which was shaped by my lecturers and tutors and other people I was fortunate to meet during my studies.
