As well as always being interested in the rights and wrongs of society and how the legal system helps to bring justice to those who have committed a crime I have also always been fascinated by all aspects of business. During my AS Level year I also studied Critical Thinking which helped me to develop my debating and analytical skills. I thoroughly enjoyed studying all of my A Level subjects and when it came to choosing a degree subject I knew that a degree combining aspects of both Law and Business was the right choice for me. My interest in business led me to gain as much work experience as possible during my education and throughout college I worked part time in my local department store which gave me first-hand experience of how a business works on a local level. I hope that during university I will be able to undertake a work experience placement with a company that trades internationally so that I can learn about how trading and commerce changes when carried out on an international marketplace.

Are you writing a resume for your first job out of law school? Resumes and cover letters submitted for entry-level attorney positions are generally far more conservative and concise than resumes for most other professions. In other career fields, companies often use online job application and applicant tracking systems that give preference to resumes that contain relevant keyword phrases. By contrast, many law firms will immediately screen out resumes that are verbose, repetitive, or provide too much non-related personal information.
Academically, I have always been a very determined and studious individual, hence why I knew that a degree at university would be the definite next step. I have a broad interest in many subject areas yet feel drawn towards a law or business orientated degree. With regards to Business, the reasoning behind my choice is the complex and intriguing nature of the subject. I particularly enjoy the way business so appropriately blends in with everyday issues.
