Ali Aims For High Standards

A law graduate from the Queensland University of Technology aims to be known for his legal ethics in court.

Arshad Ali was one of the two lawyers admitted to bar in a special admission ceremony held last Friday at the High Court in Suva.

Arshad plans to practice in mitigation.

“But primarily I want to be known as an ethical lawyer that is hard working and ensuring that I serves my purposes in Court and uphold my principles,” he said.

Mr Ali sbegan studying for his Bachelors of Law and Economics at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane in 2009.

He had been working for a legal department while studying then graduated in 2015.

“I feel content as the sacrifices I have made especially with my father providing for us and my mother giving all the love to her children. I feel that I have done a little bit to repay them for all the things they have done,” said Mr Ali.

He has a brother who works in Brisbane.

“Law is complex as you deal with people and ensure that they are represented well before the court of law,” he said.

He said he had a relatively privileged upbringing and had not faced the great struggles that others have.

“I believe that life is duty and we can only achieve any sense of meaning by attempting to rise above our desires to serve others, be they our family, friends neighbours, the destitute, the homeless, or the outcast,” he said.

“It is this duty that is our North Star and can guide us through out dark hours.”
