Law intrigues me. The development in the law and
the way it adapts to an ever changing society has fascinates me extensively. I
started to have interest in law after watching movie “The Judge”. This has
stimulated my skills of arguing, analysis and evaluating.
In A-Level, I learned different
aspects of Law, how the English Legal System operates and influence the
society. I enjoy taking up pleasure reading primary sources and present
persuasive arguments in a reasoned, logical way. I enjoy reading cases, one that interests me is R v
Blaue, which was explored if the victim’s belief determined their fate, would
this affect the outcome for the defendant? The legal principle was, “Those who
inflict violence must take their victims as they find them” How
incredible that one person’s actions could change law set out for the whole country?
After completing A-Level, I have undertaken work
experience in a company, Tricor (Services). I have learned wealth of local
knowledge to provide expert advice in running business law. It provides me wide
range of integrated training in the law advisory. I discovered how
a law firm operates and was given a chance to assist attorneys in researching, writing, and helping with both
incoming and existing cases.
My enthusiasm towards law studies
seems superficial, so I joined in an international law firm, Naqiz &
Partner Advocates & Solicitors. I switched in different departments: commercial;
banking & finance; conveyancing. I learned how they provide advice to varied
client based on wide range of corporate and commercial legal matter. In finance
department, handling all forms of loan and financing transactions are
complicated, but I do enjoy. Plus, I assisted a case in County Court, observing
the work of both barrister and judge, how the impact of lawyer’s professions could
affect the result of the case. I love the feeling when I saw a client smiling
at the lawyer’s hard work after completing each cases. Law involves simple
matter likes helping client to buy a house, transfering the ownership of
assets, but it helps needy people in serving justice in a court room which I
can’t find any of these satisfaction in others job.
high school, I had the privilege of becoming head of librarian. I had the chance
of giving speeches to my contemporaries, which trained me to speak in front of
crowd without any fear. I took part in interschool debating, this has further
improving my communication skills immensely, able to provide strong arguments
against others to support my own opinion, which is significant in the career of
legal profession. I also chaired the Student Council where I had organised
numbers of my school’s welfare and representing the school as an ambassador.
In the university, I was exposed to mooting, which
is completely different with debating or public speaking. It involves parts of
persuasive advocacy instead of supporting own opinion. I understand the
importance of applying those propositions in order to argue which I tend to
make extensive submissions in the past, which was wrong. Mooting might be nerve
cracking but it is fun! Academically, I was awarded the title of “Best Law
Student” for my entire A-Level intake.
Besides this, I enjoy reading. One of my
favourite book is “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. The author uses the
characters to present the civil rights and racism in United States. An attorney
who hopelessly strives to prove the innocent black man accused of rape. This
has exposed to me both the dark and bright side of law, which motivated me to
study law to eliminate injustice.
seems to be extremely difficult and challenging but I’m passionate in
overcoming all the problems. I always work hard to the best of my ability in
order to achieve my goals and develop the career that I wish for. I hope that
you will award me with the privilege of an offer from your university for my
