✨🌟MY LPC CERTIFICATE ARRIVED🌟✨ ⁣ ⁣ I’m so excited to have finally received my LPC certificate from u_law!! Studying the LPC full time alongside working 2 jobs (completely my choice) and then all electives during the lockdown meant it was one of the most challenging years of my life! ⁣ ⁣ I don’t know if I’ve shared this before, but when I started my LPC, I still had my paralegal job and I decided to move home to save money to a new house in a new place I’d never lived in🏡 (my parents moved in my 3rd year of undergrad) and I got another job working in bar to try and help make some new friends. Pretty much everyone told me I’d taken on too much - a woman at work who’d completed her LPC actually put bets on in the office that I’d either quit the LPC or my jobs by the end of October!! At the time it upset me and I definitely stressed that I’d bitten off more than I could chew BUT are after a lot of early mornings and late nights, huge amounts of organisation and dedication, I not only passed, didn’t quit anything but with also got a DISTINCTION!!💫🥂⁣ ⁣ If someone tells you that you can’t do something - don’t let it get you down but instead have the determination to prove them wrong!!💪🏻😜💜 ⁣ ⁣ Lots of you are studying the LPC - here are my top tips:⁣ 📍Key to success is in the preparation. Work hard but work smart. Create useful tables and checklists ready for the open book exams. ⁣ 📍Pay attention and make good workshop notes. ⁣ 📍Do the reading and properly prepare for every workshop. ⁣ 📍Show up. I juggled a million things and still didn’t miss a single workshop. ⁣ 📍Enjoy it. I found it so much more interesting that my LLB. ⁣ ⁣ Off to go put this on the wall underneath my Law degree💓 - a little reminder everyday that I achieved THAT!💫💛💛 ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #lpc #LPC #ulaw #postgrad #law #lawstudent #achievement #lawdegree #futuretrainee

I just saw a quote that said "rejection is redirection." . I received a rejection from my dream firm today. I had a little sulk. Then got up and made some choccie milkshakes for me and the boys. . I can't change the decision, but I can apply what I learn next time. I'm sending my video interview to my mentor and university career advisors for feedback. Mega cringe I know, but needs must. . I haven't lost out on anything. I'm in the same position I was yesterday. I'm going to take this opportunity to learn, adapt and overcome. . When I do finally get a TC, I'm going to lovingly stare at it, just like Jax and his babyccino 😂 . #unlawyerly_lawyer #aspiringsolicitor #aspiringlawyer #law #ulaw #u_law #babyccino

Dispute Resolution Saturdays with mini trainee - perk of online studies u_law #repost #ulaw #u_law

Online learning isn’t so bad?! Finished my legal drafting and client interviewing workshop, then managed to get a run up and around Arthur’s seat before it got dark! Happiest when muddy. Incredibly grateful for this green space at my doorstep! #ulaw #oncloudtrail #lawstudent #runnersofinstagram #edinburgh #scotland #lawyertobe

THE LPC ONLINE WITH u_law 📚📝 I started the lpc face to face in September, but moved to online streaming in October when my Dad’s health declined. I was intending to return back face to face but with u_law suspending all face to face teaching for the time being, I’m online for the for the foreseeable. I thought I’d share my tips for those new to streaming: 1. Get up, showered and dressed like normal. - Having a routine makes me so much more productive. I work better in the mornings so set an alarm like normal and get on with the day. If you’re too relaxed you may not focus as much. 2. Set up a study space away from your bed. - As tempting as it can be to stay in bed, I find I’m more likely to sit and scroll on my phone or want a nap by staying put! If you’re able to, try and set up a study space in a quiet place. With less distractions, you are more likely to stay focused. 3. Put your phone away for workshops - This was something that really benefited me. I leave my phone in a different room whilst in workshops. You wouldn’t have it out if you were face to face. I also put my MacBook onto do not disturb which I recommend if you have one! 4. Set up a group chat - Moving to online doesn’t need to be isolating. I suggested setting a group chat as everyone logged in to collaborate at the start of a workshop. It’s so useful having people to ask questions to! 5. Move away from your computer every so often: - Suddenly are commutes have stopped and our breaks in between classes. Whilst this extra time is so useful, I find I can get stuck at my desk. A quick walk with the dog or doing something around the house gets you away from the computer meaning you can come back with a fresh mind. 6. Take part - Participating and asking questions (over the mic and not just via the chat box) means you will get more from your workshop. The unit workshop tasks were designed to be completed in groups. I find being more involved means I get far more out of the workshop. It also helps to hear questions others may have which you may not have thought of. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have online learning tips📚📝 #ulaw #LPC #lpcstudent #onlinelearning #uni

Missing this view u_law I kinda wanna actually start using this since I’ll have so much time now 🤔 #studygram #lawstudent #law #thirdyearstudent #lockdown2 #ulaw #ulawleeds

January exams completed.... now for some pizza and bubbles before it all starts again next week! 🥂🍕📝

I think that all of my photos for 2021 will take place in front of a desk and I’ve made peace with that idea 😅📚 #lpc #llm #lpcstudent #ulaw #studying #deficated #aspiringsolicitor #girlswithambition

LPC Diaries 💫 First week officially done ✅ ___ It’s been an intense week (as expected) but I enjoyed it nonetheless. At the moment I’m trying to develop a routine that allows me to work efficiently. When I’ve perfected it I will definitely be sharing! ___ #lpc #ulaw #llm #lawstudent #student #JTBAL

🪴Revision Checklists🪴 With Core Module exams slowly creeping up, I’m starting to think about revision this week. I’ve started by making my revision plans and checklists. I don’t usually make revision plans for exams, but with the huge amount of content on the LPC I’m worried if I don’t make a plan, I’ll miss something out! I’ve compiled all of the learning outcomes from the workshops to make sure I cover everything. I have also made a grid of things I want to put in my exam folder, like summary sheets, flowcharts, MCQ examples and skeleton answers for popular exam questions. These folders will be my go to references if I need to look for something in an exam. Good luck to all the LPC students who have started/are starting revision for the March exams! We have plenty of time and we got this! . . . #ulaw #legalpracticecourse #studying #universityoflaw #lawstudent #lawstudentlife #study #studygram #studyspo #studymotivation #studynotes #revision #exams #examseason #stationary #folders #checklists #lpc #aspiringsolicitors

How I am revising for Criminal Law: 📎 Using a past paper I annotate the fact patterns to note all of the potential offences and any defences. I then set out the answer using my notes, applying the AR and MR. 📎 I go through the points to note, checking to see if I have missed anything or need to mark anything as important and add them to my answers and highlight the points that I need to focus on. 📎 Based on what I missed I will go over my notes and make any additions or amendments and then do the process again with the second past paper with the goal that I will have picked up on anything I have missed the first time. 📎 I have also been practising using the fact patterns from previous workshops. With criminal law its not just revising the material but practising applying the AR and MR and preparing to do so under times conditions. #studygram #law #lawstudent #lawstudentsofinstagram #thelawyersstudygram #revision #organisation #criminallaw #study #coffee #studymotivation #gdl #ulaw

I took the whole of yesterday off and it was the best decision I could have made. I felt productive (still struggle with feeling guilty if I am not productive though) as I sorted a few things out in my room but taking the day off has made me ready to work over the next three days in preparation for the Criminal Law exam! #studygram #law #lawstudent #lawstudentsofinstagram #thelawyersstudygram #revision #organisation #criminallaw #study #coffee #studymotivation #gdl #ulaw
