UCL Faculty of Laws


Yanlun Meng - LLM 2016

How did studying at UCL Laws, located in the heart of legal London, benefit you?

I have greatly benefited from networking and collaborating with the law sector and have learned a lot about how law firms operate. During the term I took an internship with King & Wood Mallesons, a famous global law firm. There I conducted legal research on general corporate compliance matters and assisted in drafting preliminary contracts.

How did the internship help you in your career? 

This internship benefited me a lot as it enhanced my multi-task capacity and I got a chance to combine theoretical knowledge with practice. In spite of the heavy workload, I found this experience extremely valuable, as my ability was recognised by a top law firm and I got the confidence to look for other internships. Studying in London provided me with infinite opportunities and it encouraged me to keep improving myself in the face of the fierce competition.
