25 year old Reem from Sweden completed the LLM in International Business Law with distinction in 2011 and has applied the knowledge gained to her Associate role at the Swedish Tax Office. "Corporate taxation law is such a vital part to the work of a corporate lawyer, yet the majority of young corporate lawyers are not deeply familiar with taxation law, resulting in many lawyers and law firms looking to accountants for help. My current role provides me with a great advantage when going back to practicing corporate law. One of the key skills I learnt at LSBF was the ability to be completely independent and challenge myself. In the final coursework for each module we had the chance to research and choose the topic we were interested in (pursuant to an approval). In order to find a good legal issue suitable for LLM coursework one has to understand the law and how to use it. Moreover, one learns to be independent, analytical, organised and confident, skills which are essential when practicing law." What did you enjoy about most about your course? "We were a select number of people compared to other universities, which allowed one the get the most out of the lectures and seminars and maintained a friendlier relationship with the professors. Also, it made it easier for the course leaders to accommodate any issues. There was always the feeling of being part of a team with the professors rather than them being superior to the students."
