First Preference Course Name
Bachelor of Laws (Honours)
Course Start Date
1 October 2014
To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to take this opportunity to apply for the above listed course with The University of Malta, as per my online application for mature age entry.
It’s taken me years to figure out what I want to do with my life; I was born into Domestic Violence from the very start and at only twenty one, I was enduring divorce and custody battles, as a result of marital violence fuelled by an alcoholic spouse.
I’ve spent sixteen years raising two children single handedly with limited support from extended family members; and the past eighteen months fulfilling my travel dreams, which resulted in a marriage to a local.
As a result of blowing the whistle on a police officer for sexual assault in Australia, I’ve been subjected to in-conceivable levels of police corruption carried forward from place to the next, sabotaging the opportunity for perfectly good relationships and the right to a fair go; which throughout the years, has given me a VERY STRONG SENCE FOR JUSTICE and intelligence training beyond my years.
As a result of my said experiences, I have represented myself in court dealing with diverse areas of law, in particular, civil and criminal cases. This entailed intensive research of the relevant act’s and the study of sections and sub-sections in preparation for on-coming hearings; and furthermore, compiling and submitting (singlehandedly) all documentation in due course directly with the courts. I’ve also had firsthand experience in cross-examining a witness and from that very moment, my passion to enter the legal arena was born.
By scanning through my attached CV, you will discover that I am currently establishing a tell all website and a campaign (starting at a slow pace) to raise awareness of domestic violence among other things, in hope to assist other’s suffering in silence; I am also pursuing appointments with the relevant ministers of Malta in order to move forward.
I am very committed and hungry for the opportunity to be counted as a legal representative with a country that is very close to my heart, to put all this experience to good use for the mutual benefit.
Thank you, for your time and I look forward to the opportunity of an interview, to further discuss my suitability for entry into The Bachelor of Laws commencing 1st October, 2014.
