    unless a blowing experience rock your life'. Last year, I just recovered from a traumatic experience of an attempted abduction. I failed to report it to a police station because of fear and trauma. The painful part is nobody genuinely wanted to support me in my family of my...

    From Aspiring Interior Designer To Aspiring Lawyer

    It started off as a small desire to be a legal assistant. Maybe take some intro classes to law and litigation to test out a new major. I thought it would be incredibly boring like interior design was. (College has such a knack for turning nearly everything boring, am I right?) To...

    Mightier Than The Pen; Let's Have The Truth

    What happens to the right of appeal when the trial-protocol is virtually done by goose-quill? What happens to a sworn statement dispute when the only one watching the person giving the evidence was a shoe-leather copper? There is a trend in the justice departments of the west...

    I want to be a lawyer.

    A divorce lawyer like my aunt or a criminal lawyer like my mom. I've went to work with my mom a lot of times and it's really fun and interesting. My mind has been set on law since I was 6. But....I have bad habits for that job. I'm late for school a lot, I don't like to go to...

    It's not about the money

    that I would make (in Britain barristers make very little in their first years) but it's about prosecuting crimes and getting justice. Everyone has the right to a defence, but the thrill is in the prosecution - proving that the defendant is a criminal. Haha, guess it's only me...

    I currently take university courses at night

    so I'll have a degree before I graduate high school. It means a grueling workload, but in the grand scheme of things it will make my life so much easier. I know I'm lucky just to be able to do this- they made a special exception for me.

    I Have Always Wanted to Be ...

    I have always wanted to be a lawyer, but alas it just wasn't to be!. I suppose i got the next best thing though, being able to work in the ''law courts'' looking after vulnerable witnesses.

    I Like College

    I'm thinking of pursuing a law degree mainly for a new challenge. I enjoy my career as an accountant and it gives me a flexible schedule to be with my family but I like new academic challenges.

    Missed Calling

    I missed my calling as an lawyer! By the time I figured out that I love the Law (and understanding it's flaws too!) and had a knack at learning how to solve cases, it was too late! But, it's okay. It's just one of those missed dreams, where I wasn't paying attention. =p For now...

    Why Law of All Things?

    “Why do you want to be a lawyer? They are slimy, sneaky, and foul. There is nothing good about being a lawyer; they do nothing beneficial to the world or society.” That is the typical response I get when I tell people that I am pursuing an education in law; most...

    By the time my father left his office

    and return to Caramoan, no one in our family would take over his practice - except me. My siblings have no plans in following his foosteps: Teesay wants to pursue a career in medicine while my brother wants to specialize in photography and computer science. This is just one of...

    I Really Want To Become A Lawyer

    I've only recently come to the conclusion that I want to be a lawyer when I'm older. Ever since I was little, I always wanted to be a veterinarian. That was my dream job. It was always about animals this, animals that. My whole family thought that a veterinarian was what I was...
