Karla Adams

LLB Graduate 2008

The lecturers are very approachable and helpful.

Karla studied at the University of Chester Law School between 2005 and 2008. Karla originates from Lowerstoft in East Anglia, about 280 miles from Chester.

"I was a long way from home but luckily I made so many new friends and enjoyed it so much that I didn't need to go back that often!"

After completing her law degree, Karla went on to study the LPC at the College of Law branch based in Chester. Karla then went straight into work with Fosters Solicitors in Norwich and is due to be admitted to the Roll of Solicitors in the Autumn 2012.

On being asked about studying law at Chester, Karla states:

"I really enjoyed studying Law at the University of Chester. The lecturers are very approachable and helpful. The Law School is small and everyone knows each other which makes you feel comfortable when expressing your opinions or asking questions. The course is designed well... The lecturers have an open door policy and tend to become more like friends than tutors. I know that some of the other [law] schools are very different. The School is very friendly and sociable and everyone seems to have a good sense of humour."

In relation to why Karla chose Chester, she indicates:

"I saw it on Hollyoaks! The real reason I chose Chester is because I wanted to be somewhere nice and friendly but with lots going on, and good shops! I had heard that Chester had all this to offer, plus it is close to Liverpool and Manchester for when you want something a bit more. The people are great, the City is beautiful and the University is perfect for what I wanted. I loved living in Chester. If I could choose again, I would definitely choose Chester!"

On the student social life and clubs and societies, Karla states:

"In my first year I lived in the Halls and it was very sociable. Everyone was in and out of each other's rooms and we were out at least three nights per week, in the SU or into the centre. In my second year there seemed to be more to do, with more student nights and new bars opening. In my third year I couldn't go out as much due to the workload, but still managed at least twice per week! Throughout my time at Chester I worked in a bar in the City. I met so many more people and found myself doing many other things rather than just the regular student nights. Chester had a lot to offer in the way of sports teams and organised social events. I never joined a team, although I wish that I had. People in sports teams seemed to really enjoy it with most of them having 'socials' each Wednesday in Brannigans! I definitely recommend joining a team."
