  • Your project emphasizes your personal connection to the study of law, government, politics, and social studies. At the same time, it portrays a student who is responsible, ambitious, and civic-minded. These are excellent qualities in a young person, and they indicate that you will be a great candidate to become a lawyer and a leader. In the presentation, these personal connections are valuable, but the script should also refer to some of the basic information that appears on the slides. You are right not to just read the slide, but you should state at least a main idea and a detail or two from the slide. Overall, very inspiring. --DForeman
