This is my very first post on this forum so first of all I would like to say hello to everyone! I am currently writing a legal cover letter, I am not entirely sure about my grammar and the fact that maybe it has not got enough details. Thank you all in advance, here is the letter:
Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a recent law graduate from the Queen Mary, University of London currently seeking for a challenging work placement opportunity within a dynamic law firm which will offer early responsibilities and the opportunity to develop practical legal skills.
During my studies I gained knowledge of many different areas of law, however, I am particularly interested in human rights law, environmental law, and commercial law as is reflected in my choice of honors courses. As well as equipping me with legal knowledge, my course developed strengths in researching and interpreting information, making effective oral and written presentations, and working collaboratively on projects.
As an individual I have developed a wide range of transferable skills. I can bring to your firm an understanding of practical legal issues, excellent client and case management, a demonstrated ability for interdisciplinary research and practice. Throughout my extracurricular activities, I have strengthened my interpersonal and communication skills and developed my ability to interact with people from a breadth of cultural, ethnic and professional backgrounds.
I would like to thank you in advance for your consideration in this matter and look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
