Marinos Samanides

Ayios Andreas, Nicosia, Cyprus


After finishing Grammar School in Limassol which is a private English school I joined the Navy to serve at the National Guard of Cyprus. I got my Degree in Law (LLB) from Oxford Brookes University and in September my Master in Oil and Gas from Reading University.
Ever since I remember I always attracted to Law and my decision to follow this path wasn't a spur-of-the-moment .
I had a serious exposure to a legal environment which at the end of the day drove me even closer to Law. Working for three consecutive summers on a full time basis (nine months) for one of the leading firms on the island was a challenging and unforgettable experience. From my first day I welcomed to a winning legal team with dedication, enthusiasm and attention to detail. No door was ever closed, no questioned I had remained unanswered. Working as an assistant to the corporate lawyers, it was a unique experience.
I was really helped to improve my transferable skills and analysis of oral and written presentation, indeed of clear, logical thought,that can be used far beyond the area of Law.
I was given the chance to attend and watch the courts proceedings of many trials at the District Court of Limassol. I was helped to to be equipped with the intellectual foundation, hand-on experience to face any future challenge and working environment.
My qualifications will be an asset in the short run for every employer.
