Edinburgh School of Law Delivers Nation’s Best

Edinburgh Law School of The University of Edinburgh opened its doors for its annual Pro Bono week earlier this month. Among attendees was prolific alumni, Ms. Srijani Chatterjee.

Ms. Chatterjee, a former student of the Graduate LLB (Hons) Law program, obtained numerous accolades for academic excellence. Ms. Chatterjee’s achievements for receiving record-breaking and new record-setting scores in commercial and civil law were commended by academic staff and resident scholars at the event.

Since graduation, Ms. Chatterjee has had an illustrious career in the ambit of law and finance. She expresses gratitude for the flexibility and value of a law degree from a Russell Group University in the United Kingdom, for her ability to explore career options across multiple industries and countries.

Ms. Chatterjee reminisces about being an international student and part of the University’s large international student body. As she informs visitors from all over the world about Pro Bono week, and of the voluntary contributions made by the field of law, Ms. Chatterjee tells me “how surreal” it feels to be returning as “a veteran, of sorts” to the city she lived in for 6 years before moving to England, and subsequently to the United States.

I ask her what her student experience was like as an international student who has lived in many countries and continents, and who was accepted and invited by many leading world universities for the pursuit of her higher education, before deciding to pursue her legal studies at The University of Edinburgh.

“It’s always wonderful to return to Edinburgh because Edinburgh never leaves me. This city and this University are an eternal home. Edinburgh Law School has given me everything I carry with me everywhere I go – and I do so with immense pride,” says Ms. Chatterjee with a glorious smile.

As I stand with Ms. Chatterjee, who is an absolute pleasure to speak with and regales everyone with her aura, I note the backdrop of the majestic Edinburgh School of Law on King Street.

With its true to life Hogwarts resonance, it is easy to see why this Sorting Hat of an institution has delivered the finest of the legal field in the United Kingdom throughout the centuries.
