To the law school staff from the front desk security team, to the administrative, library and IT departments and everyone else who plays a role in making Francis King Carey Law School so warm & welcoming and conducive to study in – thank you.
Last but definitely not least, to my fellow classmates who made class fun and engaging as we slogged through everything from the “horrors” of Core Grammar, which made me realize that I did not know English despite it being my first and native language from birth – smile, through term papers and final exams – thank you for making my LLM journey truly memorable and forever grateful for new friends made.
