Personal Statement

I have a passion for law and I would like to pursue a legal career. I aim to practice with the utmost care and strive to conduct myself in a professional and ethical way at all times. I have spent time in South African courts observing attorneys in order to witness as many matters as possible and gain practical experience. \nIn 2015 I completed my LLB degree with the University of South Africa (UNISA), and I have been working as a commercial insurance broker since September 2015. \nI am eager to learn and believe that working hard is the only way to be successful. I am a determined and responsible person who is able to communicate effectively and pays attention to detail. Working as a waitress; as an Avon representative ; and participating in voluntary work has improved my time management and organisation skills, as well as enhanced my ability to listen to; understand; and be patient with others. \nAlthough I live in South Africa I am willing and eager to immigrate to England. Despite the fact that this will be a big change I remain excited and enthusiastic. \nI have confidence that I will be an invaluable asset to the legal profession and intend to work to the best of my ability in every aspect of my career. \nThanks for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you soon. \nSincerely,\nJanyta Schauffer\t\n
