Dear Ms. Breslow,

Law has always been my strongest suit and I have always had a passion for it. I am interested in working for your
law firm which specializes in international merger and acquisition, and I believe that I am the best suited candidate for this
position. This position would not only benefit my professional career, but it will also benefit you because I have a multitude
of skills and important experiences that I can use to take your firm to the next level.
From a young age, I have been deeply interested in how companies merged and because of this, I wanted to
become a lawyer. This law firm is internationally acclaimed and is the best of the best which is the reason for why I am
writing to you. With many skillsets and exceptional grades, I believe that I am the best candidate for this job. I go above and
beyond standards which is evident in my resum which means that I am hardworking, intelligent, and well prepared. These
traits are all important in a lawyers career because they represent the basic foundations of a successful lawyer. I am a
Korean Canadian student who strives to accomplish the best of his goals and set an example to others. Because I am a
Korean Canadian, I am fluent in Korean and English which I can use to create diplomatic connections and advantageous
connections. Not only am I bilingual but I also am a great debater because I use logic, word choice, and facts to my own
benefit which enables me to build solid reasons and statements. I believe that being a great debater plays a big role in
becoming a successful lawyer because this is a profession that includes lots of fact based data which needs to be transcribed
into convincing statements. Additionally, I also lived in three different countries (United States, Canada, and Korea) which
has enabled me to have multicultural outlooks and an international perspective which will come in handy for this position.
Here in Korea, I am attending an international school which improves my outlook on situations because the students here
come from different backgrounds and are of different races which furthemore proves that I have a wide viewpoint.
I am looking forward to hearing your positive response. I will be in contact with the office within one week. I will
be more than happy to answer any questions or inquiries. Please feel free to contact me at your disposal through my email
which is or call me at (+82) 010-6710-1250. Thank you for taking your time and reading
through my cover letter.
