PROFESSION BEING EXAMINED
I am writing this proposal
to request permission to complete a research project on a specific career
choice that is of interest to me. I have chosen the field of law
and would greatly appreciate the opportunity to better familiarize myself
with this career choice. Corporate and environmental studies are
the two areas of this field that I would like to study in this report.
Also, I would like to study and research the added effects of having a
Finance major and M.B.A. in connection with a law degree.
DESCRIPTION OF EXPECTED
WORK/ DETAILS OR PROCEDURE
The first major portion
of this research project will consist of the interview report completed
on two professionals from their respective fields. I am looking into
interviewing Mr. Hank Perret of Perret, Doise and Judge Dee Simon.
My first action will be to schedule a meeting with each of these individuals
and set up a time suitable for an informal interview of this kind.
The subject matter of these interviews will primarily concern questions
dealing with the everyday working life of the law industry. These
questions and answers will be recorded on a tape recorder in order to preserve
as much accuracy as is possible for this interview. The recording
will then be documented in an official interview report, which will be
submitted to you on the proper date.
The second half of this
research project deals with the creation of an annotated bibliography that
will document resources that pertain to and are informative of the law
profession. Approximately ten sources will be used in all.
Some of the sources will come from books and journals, but the main sources
of information will come from the Internet. I plan to present the
articles to you in an annotated bibliography that will be turned in with
the interview report.
EXPECTED GOALS OR
OBJECTIVES/ POSSIBLE BENEFITS OF PROJECT
The main purpose of
this project is to gain a better understanding of the law profession.
Because of my interest into becoming a lawyer, the information gathered
from this report will prove invaluable in allowing me to make a decision
concerning my future career. I have determined a number of
specific goals and benefits that I would like to achieve:
· Learn if this
profession suits my attitude and work habits
· Find out what
a typical day is like
· Gain two contacts
in this field
· Find out the
proper steps I need to take now as a undergraduate student
· Take steps
in learning more about the profession
