My name is Paul. I have been granted a place to study for a Masters in Law. I would like your asssistance towards achieving this goal.
I have no family connection to the area of law, indeed my parents are not graduates. My dad will hate me to say this but he has only GCSE's and an accountancy certificate. He is retired now. I did harbor the occasional teenage fantasy in which I strode confidently around a courtroom amazing a jury with my persuasive oratory and pulling off an almost impossible courtroom coup resulting in a standing ovation from an appreciative audience. This is what reading "To Kill a mocking bird" did to me.
I have always been someone who is ready to share my opinion about things and eager to be a leader and organizer. I enjoy debate and excelled in it during my school years. I suppose some might have described me as a little loud and perhaps too ready to speak up but, at least, no-one has ever expressed surprise by my choice of career. I feel very fortunate to have identified my métier so easily and accurately and have enjoyed my career to date.
My degree specialization was in Financial Law and I graduated with a pleasing final mark of 2.1 Upper reflecting a passion for my chosen specialty, intelligence and diligence as a student. Since graduating, I have worked in progressively more challenging and interesting roles and now regard myself as having a good general grounding in that area of work.
My goals now are to persue a master's program to extend my skills and knowledge in my specialty. I love my country and want very much to contribute to its economic well being and progress; I see participation in the program as an opportunity to help me fulfill this goal. Like many of my countrymen, I am concerned at the economic distortions that might result from our vote to leave the European Union.
I hope that my participation in the program might, ultimately, help me to reduce this blight on the local business environment. I should be interested in assisting in research into the effects of corruption, specifically into the application of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. I also intend to commence my teaching, I know that I am an effective teacher and I greatly enjoy passing on my knowledge and enthusiasm to young lawyers.
Amongst the reasons that the LLM program is particularly attractive to me are: that it is specifically designed for educated lawyers such as myself; the breadth of the curriculum, encompassing relevant subjects other than the law; the opportunity to design an individualized program; the fact that the faculty members have international prestige in their respective fields; and the knowledge that this prestigious program will attract the ‘cream’ of young international corporate lawyers and so provide opportunities to profit greatly from the insights of my fellow class members as well as the chance to share my own.
The LLM program consists of its direct costs (those directly associated with my enrolment, such as tuition, student fees, books, a computer and other supplies) and indirect costs (those not directly associated, including housing, utilities, food, personal expenses, transportation, relocation costs and other basic living expenses).
I will need a living allowance of £3,400, Books and Supplies £1,300, Instructional Materials £1200, Transport costs ( to include an organised foreign trip by the faculty) £2100. This totals up to £8000.
Foremostly, I would like to thank you for reading this far. Thank you for coming into my life and giving me joy, thank you for loving me and receiving my love in return. Thank you for the kindness I will cherish forever.
If only there was enough space on to evoke my unfettered joie de vivre for what you have done. The gaiety, the mirth, the heavenly bubbling of every effusive cell that sings inside me for your kind and pithy offering. May you be rewarded bountyfully.
Yours ever gratefull
