I want to be a lawyer

“I want to find justice for people in my society,” says SengVoleak, a female high school graduate from Kampot province explaining why she wants to be a lawyer.

Voleak, 18, has just moved to Phnom Penh and is studying English and history as she is preparing for studying law at Royal University of Law and Economics. Voleak doesn’t know yet whether she can study law this year. However, with a passion since she was young, she says: “Though If I cannot study law this year, I must study it next year.”

Voleak’s favourite movies are the ones featuring trials and related to the law. “I like watching movies about lawyers and also the trial process,” says Voleak adding, “Shadowless Scale is the Cambodian movie about trials I love the most.”

When asked about a second choice if she could not become lawyer, the young girl with a strong goal says: “If not a lawyer, a law related position such as judge or prosecutor in the Ministry of Justice or in a court in Cambodia.”
