University of Fiji Bachelor of Laws graduate, Sharika Dutt, encouraged aspiring law students to buckle down and put in the extra effort when pursuing the field of law.

“The only thing needed when pursuing the field of Law is hard work, we all struggled during these four years so if you want to be a lawyer, there are no shortcuts, you need to work hard,” she said.

The 23-year-old graduated on Friday from her program and even though this initially was not her ideal field of study, she was grateful to her parents for motivating her to pursue law.

“I have graduated with a Bachelor of Laws so I’m feeling overwhelmed, the struggle of four years is all because of my parents, they both encouraged me to do law.

“I was never interested in law, but I decided to follow their advice and pursue it,” she said.

“There were challenges, we had a very hard time doing our assignments, we had our classes online, so we had to meet the deadline and there was always the financial capacity, but I’m here today and I’d like to thank my parents and my sister.

“They worked very hard for me to reach here.”

She said she planned to pursue a Master of Laws in the future.

“I have just completed my GDLP (Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice Programme) and we are now moving on with our placements.

Afterwards we will have our bar admissions,” she said.

Her mother Shaleshni Prasad said she was proud and always engrained the importance of hard work and studying in her children.
