Mr. Bun Penghuy received his BA in Law from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2015. Currently he is a Legal Adviser at KCP Cambodia.
Prior to this, he was a Translator at VOA Khmer.
Mr. Penghuy said that:
“I have learnt and gained legal knowledge from different lecturers, some of whom are lawyers, prosecutors and judges. During that time, I enjoyed discussing and debating legal matters not only with my classmates but also with lecturers. Unexpectedly, I enrolled into a course called “Legal Research and Writing” taught by Mr. Mam Thana, the Associate Dean of College of Law. This particular course is very useful and helpful for law students to shape their future careers. For instance, I applied to the law firm I am currently working for and I was asked to take a test consisting of legal knowledge and skills.
One of the test items is to write a letter to give advice to clients. Suddenly, I recalled what I learnt from “Legal Research and Writing” class and wrote as what I learned. After the interview, waiting for one day for the result and being offered, I came to realize that UC has helped me a lot, especially with the above-mentioned course. I am strongly confident that law courses conducted at UC are the fundamental bases to prepare students for their desired careers.
I would like to express my sincere thanks to all of my law lecturers, namely Lecturer Eang Sopheak, Lecturer Than Chanchamnan, Lecturer Chan Dararasmey and Lecuter Keo Vanny, and especially the Associate Dean, lecturer Mam Thana, for teaching me how to write the memorandums of law. Also, thanks to UC, I am who I am today. Without a scholarship from UC, I would not have today and would not get this job. I encourage you all to get involved with UC activities as much as possible.”Share on Facebook
