DMU Law Grad Sets Sights on Becoming a Barrister

DMU Law Grad Sets Sights on Becoming a Barrister

A recent De Montfort University Graduate is currently studying for the Bar, with her sights set on becoming a barrister, thanks to assistance from The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity.

Jasmin Mohamed, who completed her undergraduate Law degree at DMU, gained a deeper desire to become a barrister during her studies – which has led her to firmly set her sights on reaching her goal.

Completing the Bar is a compulsory requirement in achieving these ambitions, and she may not have been able to undertake this further education without Sir Thomas White Loan Charity support:  “I would encourage anybody who is thinking about applying for a loan to apply to Sir Thomas White Loan Charity, because without this loan I would’ve immensely struggled with the funds for my course.

“The Charity has given me the support I needed to pursue my career ambitions. I am currently enjoying my course so far and I am one step closer to my career goal and I am looking forward to what is to come in the future,” said Jasmin.

Throughout her current course she will be applying for Pupillage, which is the training that is needed in order to fully qualify as a Barrister.

She then aims to move in to a job in the common law sector to practice her trade.

While searching for financial support, Jasmin heard of the Sir Thomas White Loan Charity through a careers talk at De Montfort University.

Most funding which she was exposed to was either difficult to attain or had extremely strict criteria in order to receive it.

However, she was extremely intrigued by the Charity’s philosophy of helping people now with the view to them becoming successful enough to return the loan in the future.

In regards to her experience with the Charity, Jasmin said: “I have enjoyed working with the Charity so far. The application process and the information provided prior to the interview, either through the website or elsewhere, has been very helpful. I was nervous for the interview but the panel were very friendly and interested to learn about my career goals – which put me at ease and made me see the situation not as an interview.”

The whole of the team at The Sir Thomas White Loan Charity would like to wish Jasmin the best of luck, in both her studies and her future career.
