Sar Mory: I want to be a lawyer

9 sar mory

Sar Mory, 24, of Kampong Cham province has aspired to be a lawyer since he was young. He loves the field very much because he thinks that being a lawyer will allow him to reduce social injustice by educating people, particularly in rural areas, about the law and its implementation.

To fulfil his wish, Mory entered law school after he graduated high school. He is now in year four at the Royal University of Law and Economics.

He said that he likes the major and the law profession because it is very important to strengthen the rule of law in Cambodia. Lawyers sometimes face danger and high risk when they cover the serious issues, such as politics, but this has not stopped Mory’s ambitions.

“If we practics it in ethical and professional ways, no one treats us badly,” he said.

Once he becomes a lawyer, Mory said that he will use his knowledge and skills to help grassroot efforts and vulnerable people by providing education and legal aid. Furthermore, he wants to strengthen law enforcement in Cambodia by using the court system to find real justice for Cambodian people – especially for the victims of human rights violations.

His family and friends always encourage him to do what he wants.

“My parents and relatives support my decision to become a lawyer.”

Currently, he is volunteering for some NGOs working on human rights to gain work experience. However, he is not sure how to prepare for this career.

“To become a professional lawyer, what should I do?” he asked.
