Lawyer returns to former University to inspire students


A lawyer returned to her former university to inspire current law students.

Amrita Govindji-Bruce owner of Nori HR and Employment Law in Oswaldtwistle was one of three former law students who attended Blackburn University Centre’s ‘Law Alumni Event – The Journey’. She spoke of her journey from being a law student to being a legal professional and then took part in a Q&A session with students.

Amrita said: “I studied Law LLB (Hons) at Blackburn University Centre in 2016. I loved my time here and was delighted to be asked to come back and speak to current students and show them that anything is possible if they have the right attitude and work hard.

“The event is a fantastic idea, from speaking to the students I think it has been very beneficial for them. I’ve been very impressed with the calibre of students and the questions they have asked.”

Second year LLB Law student Maseeha Sidat, 20 said: “The event was really inspirational and motivational. It was really useful to get an insight into what we can expect from a career in law and hear about where other Blackburn University students have progressed to.

“What has been clear from hearing the speakers is that it is a very competitive discipline and that you need to have a lot of self-belief, but if you work hard you will be able to achieve your dream.”

Law lecturer Wai Mo, who organised the event said: “The premise for organising the ‘Law Alumni Event – The Journey’ was to illustrate to all current students, who are on a range of law courses – LLB/ LLM/ BA Business with Management, that success is waiting for them.

“The three invited alumni clearly brought this alive with their journeys, but also told students about their trials and tribulations to get where they are currently. Overall, my desire was to inspire the current students that the world is theirs for the taking.”
