Hello, I’m Hannah Foley and I would like to apply for Vice President of the Inns of Court Society. I have recently been drawn towards pursuing a career at the bar and believe that this society is one of the best ways to discover amazing opportunity’s to network, socialise, and attend valuable talks and workshops to further your knowledge and employability.
I am currently a first-year student, and extremely dedicated and hard-working. I am an active member of the Law-society netball team, where I have been able to meet a lot of the Inn’s members and Law society members as well as show my commitment and leadership skills. I am naturally a great communicator, and I have a lot of ideas about how to improve and make the most of the Inn’s society.
If I was elected to be Vice President, I would put forward the following proposals;
- Increase awareness of the society. I have only relatively recently discovered what the society has to offer and what opportunities are on offer. There are some great people behind the society and increasing awareness will get a lot of keen students involved!
- Introducing mock trials. This is an aspect of becoming a lawyer that personally I have had little exposure to but is the main reason I wanted to pursue a career in law! By encouraging these activities, it ensures that students have enough chances to practice and to experience what life as a lawyer might entail.
- Frequent meetings. Meetings ensure that the society is working together well and achieving its potential. It also will help maintain the close relationship with the law-society, so that more fun activities and events can be planned together.
I am very eager to put forward my application and to contribute to the work of the society, and to see the society grow and help people like myself discover the world of the bar!
