Law with a Modern Language


Welcome to the Modern Languages student blog!


As this is my very first post, let me talk about why I chose to study Law with a Modern Language at Leicester.


Currently, I am in my second year of a 4-year programme. Here at Leicester, you are given a choice between French, Spanish or Italian as an extra flavour to your law degree. A lot of people have asked me why I chose Spanish and all I can say is: why not? Originally, my interest came from the Cris Morena Group (CMG), a company that produced some of my favourite Spanish-language childhood series. Armed with just YouTube, pen and paper I decided to learn the language so that I could understand what was going on. From there, I continued learning the language during after-school classes and the rest is history…


I always knew I wanted to do a joint degree course but it wasn’t until the start of my A-levels that I decided to study Law with Spanish. I first started considering law courses following a trip to Waterstones where I got a copy of Glanville Williams: Learning the Law. I remember referring to it in my personal statement and being so excited that I finally found what I wanted to study. So much so that I didn’t pay much attention to anything else at the time.


Above all, I wanted to be able to develop the skills that I had read about such as interpreting the written word and crafting arguments. For me, law is an interesting, intellectually stimulating subject and although I complain about the reading like every other student, I am always adding more books to my reading pile simply because I genuinely find my modules fascinating. I believe that is one of the reasons why they say that your university experience should be great – you should be studying something that you truly enjoy!


Choosing to study Law with a Modern Language at Leicester was a great choice once I knew that it would make me happy. It wasn’t easy to get to that stage but once I did, it felt like a weight was off my shoulders. All I had to do was sit down and think about what was important to me, what I wanted out of University and which course would best cater to that. So, for those of you deciding which university or course you should choose, I suggest taking a moment to figure out what your motivations and values are. Find out what is important to you and from there it’s simply a case of finding the university that offers you just that.

    Hi Cintya,

    I was wondering at what point did you realise that Leicester was the right university for you?
