Law LLB Personal Statement
Submitted by Megan
Law is a subject that has, in recent years, become of particular interest to me. Since leaving school, I have worked at the University of Warwick full time as a Marketing Assistant Apprentice and now a part time basis as a Marketing and Events Assistant. This has given me the opportunity to witness and understand the inner workings of a business first hand. During my time at Warwick I have also been able to witness law in practice and how these laws affect people on a day to day basis.
Though law is an academic subject, it requires practical application. It is this and the fact that law permeates though every area of life that makes it such a compelling area to me. I am currently studying Business Foundation at Coventry University College. I believe the knowledge that I will gain from this course, as well as my current understanding and passion for Law as a subject, will make me an excellent candidate for this course.
My current skillset and passion for learning would aid me greatly on this course. I am an eager debater; I enjoy the pressure that comes with public speaking and I pride myself on both my written and spoken English. I am an avid reader of both fictional books and academic/news articles; reading fiction is a hobby of mine whereas I value reading news articles in more of a professional sense. These articles and news stories keep me up to date with current affairs. I believe that it is of vital importance to be aware of what is happening within the world - and this is a responsibility I take very seriously.
I also have excellent time management and organisational skills; I have a strong work ethic and am highly motivated in both the work place and in an educational setting. Evidence of this being that I have worked full time whilst continuing my education in my apprenticeship, and having retained this role at the University of Warwick whilst studying my foundation degree. This continued employment allows me to put everything I learn from my foundation course into practice whilst giving me an even further understanding and advantage in a business setting. After attending an open day session about this course, I am even further enthused about the prospect of studying at Coventry University. The opportunities available to students interests me greatly. I am very happy to work hard, because I know that when I do, I see results that make me proud. This could be in assignments or exams, volunteering in a legal area or the opportunity to have a paper published in the Coventry Law Journal as offered by yourselves. I am particularly interested in the International Law aspect of the course. My future plan sees me working internationally in a commercial setting or working as a Barrister in the international legal market. I believe this course offers me the means to make my goals a reality.
I bring both a strong and energetic presence to everything that I do. I feel that on this course, I would be in an excellent position to share both experiences, knowledge and a common ground of passion with my cohort in order to make both my own and other students experiences as valuable as possible. This is an exciting prospect for me, and one I hope I will be able to act upon in partnership with Coventry University. My current skillset and passionate personality are attributes I feel would be a great asset to the University.
