To be honest, I signed up for the Bachelors of Jurisprudence programme at University of Malaya without an inkling of what it entailed. I did it simply because I felt like it was the right thing to do.
So, I was in for a bit of a surprise.
I took a peek into the auditorium this morning and saw a room full of all sorts. The B.Juris programme is an external programme for, largely, working adults with commitments and families. There were people from all walks of life there, including some who came with their kids in tow.
This is the first time that I am in a situation where the students were not really students and it was quite interesting. Seen from a different angle, this is another interesting opportunity to network.
Personally, I’m hoping to have some fun while learning law. It’s also useful to have some friends whom you can call from the police lock-up.
PS: I think that I might be one of the only people in the room who has no interest in becoming a lawyer of some sort, which seems silly considering the amount of money that I’ll be spending on the programme.
