Law: Chris' Essex experience
“Learning from academics with international reputations as leaders in their fields was amazing. Being able to use the knowledge that
I gained every day is a joy. My current position within the Treasury Solicitor's Department is extremely challenging, and I'm glad
that I gained such a solid understanding of public law and human rights law; but a degree alone wouldn't have guaranteed me such an amazing job.
Additional opportunities at Essex, such as gaining experience in the Essex Law Clinic, really help you
stand out from the crowd.”
Chris Burge, LLB Law 2010, Legal Trainee, Treasury Solicitor's Department
