Student Testimonial - Ashley Collins

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Law. I was able to study 5 courses under very informative, engaging professors. The knowledge gained on exchange will be of immediate value to me in adding a comparative aspect to my final dissertation, and largely a long-term benefit to my future career in Canada. The networking opportunities with various lawyers and academics throughout the term added to my positive experience. UBC's campus is beautiful, and Vancouver has a lot to offer; there were various cafes, beaches, and lively restaurants all steps away from my apartment in Kitsilano.  I immediately felt welcomed to the UBC legal community as I was always invited to join in and participate in law social events, and extra curricular activities."
