This is me being productive. Taking a break, eating fish and chips on the beach and drinking a cider... during exam season. This is me working my hardest. How? Because I will burn out without breaks. - We ALL work differently. Whether that’s under different pressures, in different ways or striving towards different goals. But, something we should all have in common is knowing how important it is to look after ourselves which requires taking TIME OFF 🗣 - I don’t do this every day - being a student requires hard graft undoubtably. You have to push yourself sometimes which is really important to remember. None of this is supposed to be easy, we need to work for it! 💪🏼 But taking an entire evening/whole day off is SO important. Taking breaks (even when i don’t think I need to) fuels my motivation + keeps my mind positive 💆🏽 ♀️🌟 - Remember your end goal. Whether you’ve finished exams + are struggling to find job opportunities, whether you’re still doing exams + struggling to remember your goal or purpose, whether you’ve been furloughed or are unemployed due to Covid-19. This is ALL temporary. You will reap the rewards at the end if you keep pushing on 🌟 - If you’re struggling mentally then please don’t suffer in silence. In listening to podcasts or reaching out for help when you need it you are giving yourself a break from your own mind - let alone studies - and that’s what matters 🌟 find some below!⬇️ - • lawcareersnet - Episode 14 Managing your Mental Health as an aspiring lawyer (and lockdown tips) • lawcare - a legal mental health charity providing support to those in the legal profession who are feeling the pressure of work or study.

Rest and a Relaxation after exams 🙌🏼 I hiked up a bloody hill to finally get to this (I’ve been wanting to do it for about 20 years 😂)

Rehearse, relax and repeat☀️ ♡ Today I have spent mostly relaxing in the sun, however spent some time this morning rehearsing and practising my oral assessment💜 ♡ Today I have felt a little more confident about my assessment, which I hope will carry to Friday☺️ . . #Law #Criminology #Law&Criminology #LLB #LawGirl #LawStudent #LawNotes #LawStudentLife #Student #Studygram #Study #ULaw #UniversiryOfLaw #UniversityOfLawLeeds #University #Undergraduate #FirstYear #FirstYearStudent #FirstYearStudentLaw

Exam season has begun and training contract deadlines are looming.⠀ ⠀ Right now I feel like I spend about 60% of my time in the house and at that desk, another 30% at work, and the remaining 10% feeling guilty about not doing enough! ⠀ Alongside wanting to spend all my time watching Harry Potter.⠀ ⠀ To everyone sitting their final exams online, stay focused and driven. Not long left to go!⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #ulaw #lawstudent #llb #aspiringsolicitors #futurelawyers #llbdegree #law #trainingcontract #commercialawareness #internship #workexperience #lawyerlife #lawschool #lawyers #lawfirm #travel #Traveler #igstudy #lawstudygram #studygram #instastudy #studyabroad #productivity #lawstudentsofinstagram

Uni may be over but the work sure isn’t 🥴⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ✨I’ve entered my first essay writing competition! ⁣ The topic is Alternative Dispute Resolution, this area of law has always interested me so it’s a perfect one to start with! ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ✨The competition is run by u_law in partnership with Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArb). It offers great prizes, but most of all it’s great experience and helps build up the legal CV.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ ✨I’m looking forward to working on this and expanding my knowledge on ADR, whilst gaining experience for essay writing competitions! #liveprospectus #ulaw

🌼LPC ONLINE EXAMS🌼 Hey guys, so its nearly 4 weeks before my stage 1 LPC exams, and there’s the added anxiety with the fact that all my exams being online. 📚 I’m happy that my uni has made provisions to make the period of exams run smoothly and support is available to make sure students are comfortable all through each of my exams. Of course, the structure for the exams has changed slightly from what I was initially expecting, with the all the core exams (both written and MCQ aspect) being open book and more time allocated. 📚 Even though the structure is slightly different, my revision strategies is still roughly the same as i had planned for it to be (minus the added anxiety I’m currently facing over it being online): creating checklists, tabbing and highlighting all my textbooks and relevant documents, printing off any exemplars or ptns that I want in hard copy and making sure all my workshop notes are as concise as possible for the exam. 📚 If you’ve written any online exam, how did it go? Please feel free to share any revision tips that worked for you!. . . . . #lawstudent #law #lawschool #lawyer #lawyerlife #lawyers #studygram #lawstudentlife #legal #lawstudents #student #lawfirm #lawyersofinstagram #study #lawschoollife #studymotivation #lawyering #lawlife #futurelawyer #studylaw #lawyertobe #lpc #ulaw #aspiringsolicitor

🌻HOW I TAB🌻 picture 2: I tab along the top for my significant pages that can be turned to easily in the exam. 🧡tabs = provisions of key TFEU articles 💛tabs = follow up activities/ checklists 💗tabs = tables with Regulation/ Directive info in. 💚tabs = points to note Picture 3: along the vertical length I tabbed information I need to refer to incase it escapes the top of my head! 🧡tabs = tables 💚tabs= summaries 💙tabs= cases 💗tabs= definitions of key principles I find it much easier to use a coherent colour scheme across the entire module rather than colour code for each sub-unit. What about you guys?? #lawstudent #studygram #studywithme #law #eulaw #gdl #ulaw
