I am working for a global firm in a quite senior position, and my hope is that my LLB journey will inspire one or two colleagues to do something similar.

You can earn a full time wage, work full-time and support your family as well as study on the side. Definitely I'd recommend it.

Going back to full-time education became almost impossible as I had a family, mortgage, and all the other distractions of modern family life. Would I recommend Arden? Yes, I would. It has given me purpose, self-fulfilment, confidence and a potential to work in my chosen field.
