Hi, I’m Emann Tehaili entering the University of Law’s competition for a chance to win a week of work experience in a leading law firm in the UK. . My career goals are inspired by Amal Clooney, an international Human Rights Lawyer because of her commitment to helping mistreated women such as in the case of the Khadija Ismayilova in 2015. With her help, Ismayilova was released from prison as Clooney showed that the charges were false to the European Court of Human Rights. . It is Clooney’s approach towards her clients that motivates me to become a lawyer that encompasses a strong human connection. She states in a Vogue article in 2018, “As women we may not be a minority, but there is bond that we all share. It is not a bond of geography, or religion, or culture. It is a bond of shared experience-experiences that only women go through and struggles that only women face.” . But those who are truly my inspiration, are the unnamed women that work hard day in and day out on themselves and their families without recognition. They are those whose rights are made unimportant and treated unfairly because of their lack of status. Their hard work encourages my career goals to become a lawyer and in turn lend a helping hand in unfair circumstances. I found that I really enjoyed listening to the instructions of a client which translated into a real solution, such as filling out a C100 form. . I hope to continue to be inspired by the strength of these women and become the best version of a lawyer that I can be. #Uinspire #london
