Graduate Story

Ella Patten, LLB (Hons) Law

I studied an undergraduate Law degree at the University of Suffolk and thoroughly enjoyed my experience. During my second year, I was provided with the opportunity to undertake a credit-worthy module called Clinical Legal Practice which enabled me to gain invaluable experience working within a regional firm.   

Upon graduating from UoS I was offered a paralegal role alongside my part-time postgraduate studies at the University of Law, and I am due to begin my training contract at a top 50 firm this coming September.   

For me, it is the staff that make the University of Suffolk so unique. I felt supported by my tutors every step of the way, and I remain grateful for the time and knowledge invested in nurturing me both as a student and during the early years of my legal career.
