DOZENS of sixth form students from Jerudong International School (JIS) yesterday attended a talk about the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple.

Patrick Maddams, sub-treasurer of the society, said the Inner Temple is a specialist legal institute based in London where they train lawyers to become a specialist court advocate (barrister).

Maddams said the talk yesterday hoped to attract more Bruneian students to become lawyers and be a part of the Inner Temple. “Recruitment was part of the visit, but it was also to inspire students to think about law as a career and to remind them that knowing the law is only part of being a lawyer,” he told The Brunei Times. He urged Bruneians to study law in the United Kingdom, saying universities there offering law degrees are ranked among the best in the world.

Pg Shahyzul Khairuddien Pg Abdul Rahman and Hjh Noor Amalina Dato Paduka Hj Alaihuddin, former JIS students, who are now working at the Supreme Court of Brunei Darussalam, also shared their experiences as law students in the UK.
