We face many challenges in our lives. Sometimes it seems like the weight of the world is pressing down, trying to snuff us out.
In the communities where we come from, we hear many negative things about the legal profession. Since Grade 8, I have been a legal and political aspirant. I believe Zambia’s deep rooted problems can only be overcome through radical improvements to education. This means building a generation of thinking, problem solving youths who will be able to unlock the great potential of the country-who will grow economies, explore democracy and improve the lives of future generations.
Many students have passed through law school at the University of Lusaka. Some are Zambia Institute of Advanced Legal Education (ZIALE) graduates and working in the legal profession, while others are attending ZIALE now.
Other people have discouraged us and made it seem as though succeeding in law school at the University of Lusaka (UNILUS) is a rare occurrence. Before attending law school, all I knew was that it is a very challenging course of study with demanding lecturers, *which is true*… but Law School at UNILUS, like any other endeavor, requires commitment, because nothing worthwhile is easy. It IS possible to succeed all it takes is the harnessing of the power we possess to make it so!
If others have done it, so can you! What are you waiting for?
