Sample 1st Paragraph Law School Admission, Patent Law

I currently work at the interface of science and the law and so it has been necessary for me to become familiar with the law as it relates to my area of responsibility.  During this time, I have become increasingly interested in the interaction and relationship between the two disciplines.  There are some obviously overlapping skills between the scientist and the lawyer, including the application of analytical skills and possessing an ‘eye for detail’.  However, I am aware that the courtroom calls for skills not necessarily apparent in the laboratory and that these include an ability to persuade and also to present scientific data in a form comprehensible to non-scientists. I believe that I do possess the characteristics necessary to enable me fulfill my ambition to become a lawyer/scientist specializing in patent law.

I want to help you get admitted to Law School. Let us seize the high moral ground together as a team!

My service is distinguished from other law school personal statement services by my humanitarian emphasis. I take the high moral ground, fostering a sense of historical justice through the celebration of diversity. Most of my clients are international students, and I enjoy helping to prepare the leaders of tomorrow in the field of law, people like you who want to make the world a better place. I help you brainstorm ideas free of charge so as to make your long term goals as creative and convincing as possible, helping you to weave the disparate elements of your story together in an eloquent fashion that causes you to stand out from the crowd.

While my PHD is in the area of Religion, I like to think of myself as more of a historian than a theologian. My focus has always been on moral theory and thinking as it relates to politics and international relations; yet, I have always been aware of how all of this invariably takes place on the foundation of Law. It is our legal system and its enforcement that makes moral thinking, dialogue, and, subsequently progress possible.

For the past 30 years, I have labored to stay current on most of the news coming out of the Developing World, Latin America, Africa, Asia, the Middle East. I have studied world religions and cultures extensively for decades. Fluent in Spanish, I am published in that language in the areas of history and gender studies.

The Humanitarian Side of Property and Real Estate Law

The humanitarian side of property and real estate law can include many things, such as supporting immigrants, refugees, orphans and other vulnerable members of society in their struggle to find adequate shelter and housing.

Humanitarian Shelter Projects

Pritzker Laureate Shigeru Ban is as well known for his innovative use of materials as his compassionate approach to design. For just over three decades, Ban, the founder of the Voluntary Architects Network, has been applying his extensive knowledge of recyclable materials, particularly paper and cardboard, to constructing high-quality, low-cost shelters for victims of disaster across the world.

More than 2 million people became homeless when civil war broke out in Rwanda in 1994, and the office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) normally supplied plastic sheets and aluminum poles to be rigged as temporary shelters. But Rwandan refugees would sell the aluminum poles and then cut down trees to use branches for structural support. Paper tubes, a low-cost alternative, was introduced by Ban, after his previous successes using paper and cardboard in construction in Japan and elsewhere. Fifty emergency shelters were constructed in Rwanda in 1998 on the Byumba Refugee Camp.

In 2001, Ban designed some beautiful paper log houses in India. What made these log houses unique was the foundation and the roof. Rubble from destroyed buildings was used for the foundation instead of the normal beer crates Ban used in some of his previous humanitarian projects, which could not be found in this area.

The log houses were coated with a traditional mud floor. At the roof level, split bamboo was applied to the rib vaults and whole bamboo to the ridge beams. A locally woven cane mat was placed over the bamboo ribs, followed by a clear plastic tarpaulin to protect against rain, and another cane mat was added on top.

Ventilation was provided by the gable design, where small holes in the mats allowed air to circulate and cooking to be done inside. 

In 2007, Ban worked on a tsunami reconstruction project in Kirinda, Sri Lanka. Most of buildings in this little fishing village were swept away by the tsunami during the Sumatra Earthquake on December 26, 2004.

The villagers were forced to live in temporary houses and live in terrible conditions. Sixty-seven houses, a mosque, and tree plantation were built and performed.

Each house had two bed rooms, a hall and a roofed, semi-open court area. The hall and the roofed court could be a large room, but to respect the lifestyle of the villagers, the rooms are separated by folding doors. The roofed court is a space protects from direct sunlight and ventilates through the house, but it´s also an important space where the inhabitants can have a meal with family, enjoy socializing with neighbors and repair their fishing nets and equipment.

The low budget materials allowed for construction to be completed quickly. The main material was CEBs (compressed earth blocks), which were available in Sri Lanka, low cost and don´t require trained builders. The furniture units were placed into the house. They were made ​​from the rubber tree, which isn't normally used as an architectural material. But in Sri Lanka, there is a big tire industry, so there are rubber trees everywhere. The units were pre-fabricated and set up in situ.

There are lots more examples of Ban´s humanitarian work online. His story is a fascinating one. Here´s a TEDx Talk with the lovely Ban, where he talks about why he decided to go into humanitarian architecture, and much more, as you might imagine.

There are NGOs all over the world working to improve the housing of the poorest people on earth. The Young Pioneer Disaster Response and and Polish Humanitarian Action are good examples. They did a joint housing program in Barangay Sungko worked hard to build 180 storm-resistant homes for families whose homes were destroyed or damaged by Typhoon Yolanda in 2013.

Here´s what they look like now!

I-Beam Design created a pallet house prototype that was featured in Prince Charles´ Royal Gardens as part of an exhibition on sustainable design organized by Prince´s Charities, Start and The Earth Awards, The Financial Times and IBM.

The inspiration for the Pallet House Project came from the fact that 84% of the world's refugees could be housed with a year's supply of recycled American pallets. With one and a half year of pallet production in the US alone, 33 million refugees can live in a Pallet House. Projects like these are going on, and they may need the support of a good real estate lawyer.
