BA Classical Studies - Lydia Goodman

Going from Classics to Law was an easy switch thanks to the skills which I had gained from my Classics degree.

The essay writing throughout my undergraduate studies taught me how to construct arguments and articulate myself well, and these skills have proved to be extremely advantageous throughout my legal studies.
