Law is the foundation of society. Without Law, society would crumble. Some aspects which particularly intrigue me include commercial, company and contract Law, which is why I would like to specialise in the civil branch of Law...

Understanding and working around the fringes of the societies we live in and how they have been created has fascinated me. The Law creates the boundaries we live by, understanding and knowing these boundaries, fully develops us as citizens...

Due to the uncodified nature of the British constitution I note that UK laws and customs are constantly evolving to suit the ever-changing society that Britons live in. This places additional pressures on key UK legal professionals like judges who are continuously required to interpret statutes in the process of various legal cases as well as adapt to unique situations that arise where no legal precedent may be present...

In Egypt, where I spent my early childhood, the law rarely applies. Instead, there are other rules that matter, and they depend on who you are. A great many de facto rules apply to the average Egyptian; fewer apply to Western expats; and very few rules apply to the elite...

'The lawyer's greatest weapon is clarity and its whetstone is succinctness.' - Judge Prettyman. From an early age, I realised the importance of written and spoken word and how harnessing this ability could grant its wielder power in everyday verbal interaction to presenting oneself to prestigious universities for further acquisition of valuable knowledge to making a contribution to the society...
As I write this, hundreds of human rights lawyers are detained and put at risk of torture after a nationwide sweep by the Chinese government. The emblem of human rights advocacy, Wang Yu, was aware of the dangers of practising human rights law under a dictatorship - yet she still defended women's rights and the practice of banned religions until her suspicious disappearance in July 2015...
The Arab Spring was a momentous event that was pivotal in my decision to study law and politics at university. Having independently researched the sources of discontent, I was particularly appalled at the suppression of basic human rights, the disenfranchisement of voters and the significant levels of political corruption...
I used to believe that law was just a system of rules to keep order within a country. This changed when I started regularly reading The Economist and The Guardian publications. I realised the scope of impact that law has on many different things like governments, businesses, crime and global crises to name a few...
As a child, the thought of becoming a defender of justice, like Sailor Moon had always excited me. Defending the innocent and making the truth known to shed light on justice is my calling. Attending a seminar about studying Law in the United Kingdom further developed my interest when the speaker made a short model about Equity and Trusts...
When some people hear the word "law" the first thing that comes to their mind is a newspaper headline they saw about a notorious criminal being brought to book. And more often than not, we think of the law as an oppressive state apparatus used by leaders to limit the freedom and liberty of people...
With a blindfold across her eyes, Lady Justice represents the objectivity of the Justice System. In a generation where the gender pay gap persists and minorities face discrimination decades after the introduction of equalities legislation, I wonder whether perhaps an all-seeing symbol would be more appropriate...
History, not law, was my first love, thanks to one of those incomparable, spirited teachers who every student should have the good fortune to meet at least once in their school lives. He helped me understand that no today or tomorrow is worth pondering without clear perspectives on yesterday...
Having been brought up in an environment where my mother is a lawyer by qualification and my father, a civil servant, the idea of justice and public service has always held my interest. Looking at my parents work, I started appreciating how knowledge can translate into developmental purposes, which ignited my passion for the study of law as part of my undergraduate degree...
Law is the foundation of all society. It undermines what we do, what we say, how we live. It controls how we operate and function within society. Laws put in place aid some and hinder others. They are followed as much as they are disobeyed...
I am a primary school teacher of a remote village. I always search higher quality of career. For that reason I cannot stop my education. I faced so many struggles to continue my study but I cannot give up my dream...
