I’ve been living for my sunny setup this weekend! 😍🙌 The ONLY way to keep working in this amazing weather. ☀️🌸🌱 #sundayfunday

Do your thing 👏 • I’m spending the afternoon just getting to grips with my action plan for the next month - I have a research project to hand in, the conclusion of teaching sessions, revision and exams to do. 🤯 • I have found all these upcoming tasks really overwhelming to get my head round considering the sheer volume for my exams that I need to cover, especially considering I have found this term so much harder with complete lack of face-to-face teaching from the outset and (personally) more difficult modules. • However I will get through it! I always think that accepting the fact I will be chained to my desk until it’s all over is the hardest part to get my head round 😂👩 💻 • Let’s do this! 💪 #lastpush

Today I’ve started studying for the legal method course online as I start the GDL this September with the university of Law. So far the course has been interesting and is pretty similar to one of the course modules I had studied for the Scottish law degree. So hopefully I can manage my way through 🤞🏼🤞🏼 #GDL#universityoflaw

Final elective today and then the PSC is complete (pending final exam results 👀) If I have any advice to current or future trainees it would be to spread this course over 2 years as opposed to cramming the whole course into 7 weeks 🤯 #ulaw #universityoflaw #psc #employmentlaw #finalstretch #lawyerlife #6monthcountdown

Another beaut day for me to look out on while doing uni prep. 🌞✨ • I’m now into my penultimate week of teaching on the GDL, and only 4 weeks away from my final exams. 😱 • The time has actually gone incredibly fast since January, safe to say despite enjoying it I cannot wait to finish! 💪#mondaymotivation

✨HOW TO ACE OPEN BOOK EXAMS✨ I’ve had a few requests to discuss this, and although I’m not very experienced with open book exams, I can share some tips. My first ever open book exam was Legal Method at the start of my MA year, but it didn’t count towards my final grade (you just have to pass first time) and it didn’t require ‘proper’ revision since the subject matter is straightforward. My January exams were normal closed book exams and I didn’t really use the physical manual for those three subjects as I preferred to use the pdf version and have Google docs open next to it. You can see which ones aren’t tabbed up! Coronavirus completely changed the assessments at u_law so I ended up doing my final four exams at home and they were open book. Here are my tips: ⚖️ TAB UP! Almost everything I needed was in the manual, so I highlighted, annotated and tabbed it up so I could easily and quickly find the information I needed. You can get sticky tabs from Amazon ⚖️ PRETEND IT’S CLOSED BOOK. It sounds like an easy exam because your notes are in front of you, but you still need to revise and practise as normal because you won’t have time to do anything other than quickly check certain pieces of information. During the exam you should mostly be using information that’s already in your head, and you DEFINITELY need to understand everything and know how to structure your answer before the exam. You can’t read a topic for the first time in weeks during the exam so still test yourself, still do practice questions and still memorise cases and statutes ⚖️ DO MORE PAST PAPERS. While I say you should still be memorising information like normal, you obviously don’t need to be able to recall absolutely everything like for a normal exam, so use the extra time to your advantage and focus on practice questions with your notes in front of you I hope this helps! Let me know what else you want me to give tips for👇 - - - - - #liveprospectus #notetaking #studynotes #studyvibes #studygram #revisionnotes #notestagram #studymotivation #studystudy #studystudystudy #studystagram #studywithme #studying #studystyle #studyaccount #studytime #studytips #studygrammer #studygramcommunity #lawgrad

It’s been a rollercoaster but after two years I can finally say I have finished the u_law LPC as well as the GDL. I am so proud that have become more confident, happy and have developed a real passion for the law industry. . . . #law #ulaw #legallybrunette #lawschool #lawschoollife #lawschoolgrad #birthdaypresents #latebirthdaygift #resultsday #igdaily #igers #instagood #somuchreading #books #aperolspritz #aperolcelebrations

🍾🌟LPC RESULTS 🌟🍾 - I am absolutely thrilled to say I have averaged a Distinction overall in these exams (I’m still shaking! 😌). Just one more grade to come back towards my Masters qualification and I’m done! 😄 - We completed these exams (and studied for each module) online, with no in-person teaching and no access to a library. On top of that, we have experienced a *global pandemic* which has affected each of us greatly, albeit in different ways - yet we still managed to sit exams with self discipline, sacrifice and perseverance. - To say it has been challenging doesn’t quite cut it - but these results prove that with some hard work and hard graft you can and will achieve amazing things! 🌟👏🏻 - As many of you know, I’ve never been one to achieve consistent “top grades”. I finished 2nd year of University with a 2:2 - (59%), and managed to pull it up in 3rd year achieving some high 2:1s and Firsts in my modules but still some low 2:1’s too. - I wasn’t going to post my individual results for these exams as I never do, but I really want to keep this page as honest and as transparent as possible. So, I am truly proud of these grades - the 66% just as much I am as the 81%! 😁 - Remember - you will never be good at everything. There will always be some things you’re worse at... and that is OKAY! Almost no one can be good at everything. You just need to take pride in what you’ve achieved and remember how hard you have worked, NO MATTER the grade 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 - I’ve really enjoyed my time at u_law and really cannot wait to start my training contract with my dream firm in 2021 😄🌟💛 Bring it onnnn! 💪🏼💪🏼 you will find me drinking cocktails and champagne (bit fancy!) in the garden 🤪🍾🍸🍹
