At Otago, I combined my BA(Hons) in Film and Media Studies with an LLB, which was an attempt to pursue my interests while also challenging myself in another area.

BA(Hons) Film & Media Studies, Law, 2007

The combined programme has sent me down an interesting career path.

I completed my study in 2007, and was extremely lucky to find a job that used both degrees.

I have been working as a legal advisor and subsequently the legal manager at the Broadcasting Standards Authority since the beginning of 2008, and I feel it is the perfect balance between media and law.

I am responsible for managing complaints about a wide range of TV and radio programmes.

My hope is that in the future it will lead to other opportunities in the media and entertainment industries.
