A TEAM of legal counsels from the Attorney General’s Chambers (AGC) gave a briefing titled ‘A Career in Law’, to a group of ‘A’ Level students at the Paduka Seri Begawan Sultan Science College (Maktab Sains) recently.
The legal team consisted of Aminuddin Zaki bin Dato Paduka Haji Abdul Rahman of the International Affairs Division; Dayangku Hazirah binti Pengiran Mohd Yusof and Raihan Nabilah binti Haji Ahmad Ghazali of the Criminal Justice Division; Wajeehah binti Dato Paduka Haji Abdul Wahab of the Civil Division; and Hilarie Shim Yi Yyn of the Legislation and Research Division.
The students were also informed of the required qualifications and the educational routes that are available locally at the Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali, or abroad in the United Kingdom, Australia or Malaysia.
The speakers also explained the roles and responsibilities of a government lawyer, which include the drafting of contracts and legislations, prosecuting criminal cases in court, and providing legal advice to government ministries and departments.
During the briefing, the students were encouraged to interact with the speakers and ask questions.
They were also advised to apply for an attachment programme at the AGC during their school holidays, to gain more insights into the legal profession in Brunei Darussalam.
