Profile building is very important for UCAS applications. When universities review each application, they look at the content of the personal statement to determine if the student has a good understanding of the subject they're applying for and if they have actively participated in extracurricular activities related to the subject.
Students can use their personal statement to demonstrate their feelings towards the subject, particularly by reflecting on and evaluating their experiences, skills acquired, and insights gained from different activities. They can also showcase how they have deepened their understanding of the relevant course and how they plan to pursue their career aspirations in the future.
Now, let's move on to your second question. What is Mooting?
In law courses, Mooting is an essential teaching component that allows law students to understand the functioning of modern courts and arbitration procedures. It provides students with the opportunity to engage in oral debates and participate in drafting relevant arguments.
LINKEDU has introduced Mooting into their office for the first time and has invited a consultant tutor who is a barrister in Hong Kong and a former lecturer at the University of Hong Kong's Law Faculty to act as the "judge" for this Mooting session. The consultant tutor will also be responsible for preparing the relevant materials. Students who participate in this event can include the skills and insights they have gained from this experience in their personal statement, adding value to their resumes and helping them stand out among other applicants.
Students who register and attend the Mooting session will receive feedback on their performance from the barrister and a participation certificate, making it a valuable experience. The number of participants for each session is limited, so it's recommended to inquire with an education consultant and register as soon as possible!
Note: The majority of the event will be conducted in English.
Target audience for the event:
- Students aged 15-18, who are about to enter Form 4 to Form 6 or Year 11 to Year 13
- Students interested in gaining a better understanding, enhancing their resumes, or applying to study law in 2024
