Studying Law

“I chose to study law because in the future I want to be able to help other people when they are in their time of need, regardless of their situation. I want to have the chance to support the legal justice system and to help support society. I enjoy studying law hugely, and find law an art in itself, being able to build cases, put yourself across accurately, and enforce the law.

“Due to financial issues, my family are unable to offer me any financial support towards my studies, and I don't want to put additional pressure on them by asking. The scholarship will relieve a lot of stress, and will enable me to do the best I can in my studies, and prepare me for the world of law after university.

“In the future I plan to train to become a fully qualified solicitor. At the moment I am unsure as to what area of law I want to specialise in, but I am sure that this will become clearer as I develop my law skills whilst studying at university. By the time I have graduated, hopefully I am going to be in a position where I can perhaps be an intern at a law firm, or even have some paid part time work whilst I am going to be working towards becoming a fully qualified solicitor.

"Being awarded the Halifax Law Society Scholarship inspires me and has given me a large confidence boost in myself. It is heart-warming to know that they have seen the potential in me and have chosen to support me through this scholarship."
