Law in demanding for girls to receive education in

Law is the body of official principles and regulations, generally found in constitutions, legislation and judicial opinions. It is used to conduct the policy, actions, and affairs of a society with authority. However, discrimination has arose in this world due to the restrictions that law has created. The passion of pursuing law was in me since young as growing up in an Asian country has exposed me to the knowledge of injustice that the society placed upon women, children and animals. 
      A significant case struck my passion into fighting for justice for women in this world. In 2006, Kamlesh, a young 18 year old bride had to face an extension of dowry settlement followed by violence placed upon her by her husband. He had allegedly cut her nose off when she was 25 after harassing her for the money every day before the attack. Even though the exchanging of dowry is officially prohibited in India under legislation that threatens a five-year jail term, activists describe the law as “ornamental” and adduce that it is almost never imposed. On the contrary, The Married Women’s Property Act (1870) in United Kingdom has allowed married women to own their own property regardless whether they are married, divorced, single or widowed. The dissimilarity of the Eastern and Western law has led me into wanting to learn more about European law and the reasons of failure in implementation of similar laws in other countries. 
      On top of that, The Malala Yousafzai incident has further strengthen my interest in wanting to understand the reasons of the serious discrimination of women in certain countries compared to Western countries. Her determination in demanding for girls to receive education in Pakistan regardless of multiple obstacles, one being shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012 has inspired me to know more about women’s status in the society and the laws that support them.
       The subjects that I am taking now allow me to prepare myself in taking Law in University. Psychology has helped me understand how humans think and behave when put into different situations. It allows me to make judgements by looking at the psychological aspect instead of focusing solely on the legal aspect. Economics has widen my scope into understanding the politics in the world and prepares me to deal with other perspectives of law as economic reasonings are often essential in legal arguments. Business has helped me branch out into understanding the formation, dissolution, and some legal aspects of the administration of corporations. It had also exposed me to knowing employee rights as this will be pragmatic in the field of law that I would like to pursue in the near future.
     Being appointed as the vice captain of my high school has shaped me into having the qualities of becoming a successful leader. I learnt to be responsible in ensuring that I abide by the rules and regulations of the school before expecting others to do so. Time management was one of the few things that I cultivated in this period of time as I had to juggle between my studies, duties as a vice captain and extra- curricular activities. Being a part of the Interact club has also allowed me reach into communities through fundraising events and to have a compassion heart for less fortunate people. Given the chance to attend the Oxbridge debating workshop had also widen my perspective of things and I was able to learn to think out of the box as well as to speak confidently with appropriate facts. 
       I aspire to study in the UK as Malaysia has similar legal systems as the UK due to previous colonisation of Malaysia by Britain. Furthermore, it will allow me to learn more about the rights of women as many large organisations fighting for these causes such as Womankind Worldwide and Women’s Aid exist in UK. Along that, many successful Malaysian lawyers graduated from UK which I aspire to be like, therefore studying in the UK has always been my dream.
