Joseph continues: “Studying at Birkbeck has changed me as a person. It has made me more aware of social aspects, particularly within law, so that I now look at a piece of news very differently, trying to gauge where it fits within law, or the legal ramifications of a piece of news. I would recommend Birkbeck in a heartbeat.”
