Peter graduated in 1988 with a LLB in Law.
What do you remember most about your time at Aber?
It was the friendliest place, I was so sad to leave. It took twenty years before I could go back. And the quality of teaching in my degree (LLB) was excellent, I now recognise.
What are you doing now career-wise and how has your Aberystwyth Degree helped?
I have been a solicitor for 30 years, a career which was made on the back of my degree. Early on I specialised in energy law and I have worked worldwide. Today I am kicking back a bit. I work as a commercial director of a US oil company, and I am also a visiting professor of law at Austral University in Buenos Aires. I have also written seven energy law textbooks. I have lectured at several universities, but I never forget Penglais.
What advice would you have for a student doing your course now?
Make the very most of it ! Indulge yourself and take the great opportunity to study so many different areas of law. You will never get such a chance again. And remember that the friends you make at Aber will stand you in good stead for the rest of your life. If I could do it all again I would, in a heartbeat.
