to whom it may concern,
please accept my recommendation for a young man , in my opinion, who enjoys a unique enthusiasm for and ability in the study of law. in all facets of fu-ping wangs record, from his academic to extracurricular to community work, i think the academic committee of your prestigious ll. m. program stands to gain an invaluable asset to next falls incoming class, if you accept this prospective student. he has managed to set himself apart from his peers in the law department of taiwans most acclaimed university. nfu sends each year the nations best and brightest students to american graduate programs, and it is my pleasure to recommend fu-ping wang as yet another example of this excellence.
as his undergraduate professor i taught mr. wang in two classes pertaining to his major, criminal policy and criminology. he finished in the top 10% in each class. i remember his being an active member of class discussion, a coordinator and conveyor of student opinion. in all completed assignments there was special attention to detail, a special creativity and motivation in opinions and theories that was absent in the majority of his classmates. to say the least, he possesses the necessary reasoning facilities and intelligence to take on the rigorous curriculum of an ll. m. program. i am confident of this fact.
but there is more to mr. wang than just another candidate who possesses the necessary intelligence and scores. there is his unique enthusiasm for his area of study and its real life impact on the community in which he lives. one senses there is a larger call to duty when he states it is his goal to become a successful legal practitioner. i have noticed a strong affinity for placing a practical application on his academic and research focuses. while too many lawyers have entered their respective field too idealistic to placate the gulf between class and the courtroom, mr. wang has illustrated the competence and maturity to reason the difference between the abstract and the reality of this tough profession.
more specifically, i am referring to his work on the judicial reform foundation, where he began his practical legal training and volunteer work while still an undergraduate. i trust his abilities to help someday reform taiwans legal codes to match the progressiveness of its present political, social and cultural development. while many of his peers are complacent with and poised to become corporate lawyers, his place will be in the community with the people who do not possess the affluence and education to know fully their rights and duties as citizens.
i think that the uniqueness of his record speaks for itself, and i applaud his decision to attend the prestigious academic environment in the united states for her ll. m. degree. it will provide him with even more legal framework and precedents to meet the trying conditions taiwans rapidly demoractizing society will meet in the coming decades.
it is my pleasure to recommend mr. craig for his application to work in your school. mr. craig has been an english teacher in my school (new generation foreign language school) since september 2004. his major responsibilities include information collecting, analyzing, teaching and translating. he is an enthusiastic and progressive young man with extremely high potentiality. he often participated in extracurricular activities contributing a great deal to school. mr. craig is not only quick at learning and good at solving difficult teaching problems, but also with a logical mind that enables him to effectively analyze difficulties. all the work handed to him was completed satisfactorily. actually, he is so reliable that i assign him with heavy responsibilities. with his help, i have been able to spend more time in making student’s excellent english speaking ability. i really consider myself very fortunate to have such a capable teacher.
i am certain his diligence, coupled with a good competence and pleasant personality, will assure him of big achievements for your school. i strongly recommend this promising young man without any reservation and your favorable consideration and assistance to him will be very much appreciated.
