It’s been 10 years since Polina Kozlova first came to New Zealand from Russia to study English with UP Education. After two consecutive stints learning English, she decided to finish her high school years in New Zealand.
Polina then undertook an LLB at the Auckland University of Technology (AUT). She completed her profs and bar admission process, was admitted to the court, and now works as a solicitor for an Auckland firm, Brookfields Lawyers.
“The great thing about a legal degree is it can be used in so many ways, through many different pathways. Since childhood, entrepreneurship has been my aspiration. That is, until I found law is also my aspiration! I’m not sure yet how the two will align in the future, but you never know – time will tell.”
