Classes that are suggested for looking good on a resume are as follows: English, public speaking, government, history, economics and mathematics. The Bureau of Labor Statistics verifies this idea, saying, “A bachelor’s degree is required for entry into most law schools, and courses in English, public speaking, government, history, economics, and mathematics are useful”(Bureau of Labor Statistics) therefore justifying the need to take these classes to be a better lawyer. The person wishing to become a lawyer must also have a law
From the day I submitted my application to study law at Victoria University, my goal was to work in a commercial law firm. Particularly, I am drawn to the problem solving element required in any legal position. Commercial law adds an additional element of solving these legal problems in a manner which helps the client achieve a competitive edge in the market. I like this competition aspect of commercial law, and the challenge it offers to any commercial lawyer. Throughout my studies and life in general, I have found that I work most effectively under pressure.
Unit 2 consisted of many tasks which influenced me greatly. Firstly, by attending talks on how to write CV's and comparing mine with others, it was clear my CV needed rewriting to increase my prospects of getting interviewed.

This will push me to complete a master's degree as I will be on a higher rank of employability and it will further my career prospects and will also increase my chances of getting a job once I've finished my degree leaving me with the enthusiasm and determination needed to reach my end goal. Through making SMART goals, I have learnt that I achieve more when I put my mind to it and believe I can.
My specific goal is to become a tax collector or entrepreneur in Business and Retail.

Finally, I will hopefully succeed in Business Ethics and Literature, learning how to permeate corporate philosophy and environmental concerns. I will advance in management behavior skills, and learn how to examine ethics through an in-depth study of a number of pertinent social issues related to the conduct of business in modern society.
Law School Perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of the practice of law is learning to be a lawyer. Virtually every new lawyer today is a graduate of law school, a much dreaded, but fulfilling journey to practicing law. Modern law schools differ greatly from their earlier counterpart, in that many more requirements and responsibilities exist. In colonial times, students pursuing a career in law would enter institutions for instruction of the law, and would automatically become qualified to practice law in the courts after a few years of study. Today, however, becoming a lawyer takes much more training, rigorous work and effort, and many years of studying in order to take a bar exam of which passage represents qualification.
I studied and learned next to scholars and professionals from around the world and I realized that that my next logical step would be to attend law school. I have been an athlete, an entrepreneur, a traveler, and many other things in my life, but above all being a utility player has made me into a life long student with a passion to learn and connect with people from around the world. I know that the proper training in international law will provide me the tools necessary to be valuable on the global stage. I will approach law school like I have approached every new venture in my life, with dedication and commitment to learn all I can. I have a sense of clarity of what I want out of life, and it begins with law school.
Also, I have trouble with when I use a quote from a book how to introduce it and explain why I chose it. I hope to overcome these obstacles next semester. However, I feel my strengths were collecting information after I understood what I was reading and also adding evidence in my papers. Once I took notes on my reading and then read over my notes a couple times it was easier for me to lay out an outline and come up with ideas to talk about. The evidence I would always choose would be quotes from the books, which I feel I picked the right ones to use.
It is in my competitive nature to be the best at whatever I do, thus I am sure I will be an ideal candidate for your course. I am certain that after I graduate from University with a 1st class in Law, despite the economic condition and escalating youth unemployment, I will have widened prospects and possibly a career as a solicitor or barrister. I anticipate university life, both the social and academic aspects. I will strive to become an exemplary student at your institute, as failure is not an option for me.
Becoming a Lawyer The career I have chosen is to become a lawyer, in either a private practice or firm, or for the government. The definition of a lawyer is an advocate or advisor in society, that is as an advocate, to represent one of the opposing parties in a criminal or civil trial, and as an advisor to counsel clients as to their legal rights and suggest courses of action. But that is not all a lawyer is about. Being a lawyer takes hard work, dedication, and many years in school. Before you become a lawyer, there are many educational hills you must climb.
Starting from college, lawyers spend much of their time working hard to become successful lawyers. They also take part in multiple assessments to ensure that they are well prepared to practice represent clients in a variety of legal matters. Pursuing a career in law is good for someone who is good at arguing, because it gives lawyers a chance to bring happiness to a client and justice to people. The government or private firms employ lawyers (“Where do Lawyers Usually Work” 1). Twenty-six percent of lawyers either work for firms or in solitary (“Lawyer” 3).
