Law student Graham Aikin is experiencing life at the Central Connecticut State University on
a one-year placement from the University of Central Lancashire. The Southport student chose
to study law at the University of Central Lancashire because of the opportunity to spend a
year in the States.
Since his arrival Graham has made the most of" the sunny weather taking trips to Newport in
Rhode Island, New Haven and Boston through the university's International Relations Club.
Graham feels that he's developed a greater understanding of America whilst making some
good friends and decisions about his future.
"I feel that I have learned a lot about American culture and have made some good friends,
many of whom I will probably stay in contact with when I return to England.
"I am due to undertake an internship next semester with the state legislature, which will give
me the chance to further expand my horizons and learn about the American legal system. My
long term goal is now to qualify as a lawyer over here and I am currently in the process of"
applying for summer placements."
